Insurance and Billing
Prometheus was founded to develop and provide diagnostic testing services for patients suffering with GI and autoimmune diseases. With a primary focus on the diagnosis, prognosis and monitoring of gastrointestinal and inflammatory diseases and disorders, our goal is to deliver products that help enable clinicians to optimize care and make a meaningful difference in their patients’ lives.
Prometheus offers a variety of specialty testing that may not be available at your regular laboratory facility. We recommend checking with your insurance company about your coverage and whether you may need prior authorization before having your specimen collected.
Prometheus may have agreements with hospitals or laboratories in your area, which may help lower your out-of-pocket expenses. If your physician does not direct you to a specific laboratory for testing, contact Client Services for assistance in locating a lab for specimen collection.
- Prometheus is a Medicare participating provider.
- As a courtesy, Prometheus will bill your primary insurance carrier (complete information must be provided), but we cannot predict the level of reimbursement.
