Aetna Reminder: Investigational / experimental lab tests

There are several lab tests that Aetna does not cover for most of their plans. Patient is responsible for the full amount of those lab tests.

Among the most common of those tests are:

1.  Lyme Disease  (medical policy CPB  #0215)

2. Vitamin D Essay  (medical policy CPB #0945)

3. Lipoprotein cholesterol test  (medical policy CPB #0381)

4. Homocysteine Test (medical policy CPB  #0381)

It is extremely important that you inform your Aetna patients, that these are non-covered services and that the member/patient will be financially responsible for the full amount of that lab test BEFORE ordering the lab tests.
