Has Anyone Had The Vectra Blood Test And Did The Result Change Any Treatment/meds By Your Doctor?

Has Anyone Had The Vectra Blood Test And Did The Result Change Any Treatment/meds By Your Doctor?

I am going to talk to my Dr. about this at my next appointment. When I speak to my insurance, they really have no clue. It is so dad they are making these decisions on what we medically need and do not need and not allowing the Dr. to make the decisions.

I am having an issue with my insurance about the test. My Dr. is in network but they claim the lab where they send the Vectra test is out of network so they will not cover it and it will be applied to my out of network deductible. I am still in the processing of appealing with the insurance company as I am not sure how an in-network doctor takes my blood in her office and then sends it to a lab how I have any control over the lab being in-network or out of net-work.

I can't figure out why Medicare pays for this test but blue cross and blue shield considered it experimental and won't cover it. I haven't gotten the bill yet but I will need the financial aid. I won't have this test run again till I am on Medicare next year.

I'm glad you brought up costs.
I've heard the subject mentioned by some folks and I looked into it because I hadn't heard about it.
And what I found out is not very promising(though that is debatable)
But what I have read it's really not that useful and can be inaccurate, and it's a private testing facility, which is why it is so expensive and most doctors don't recomend it or bring it up.
It doesn't have a clear medical value as far as insurance goes which is why most won't pay for it.
All this could change with more research and perfecting the testing but that's a matter of wait and see.
