Prior Authorization

On behalf of our clients, Mayo Clinic Laboratories will seek insurance authorization for eligible tests and file an insurance claim upon final result.

Prior authorization services are available for a select number of tests, listed in the following table. On completion of prior authorization services, Mayo Clinic Laboratories will bill the insurance carrier and accept the amount of coverage assigned.

In some cases, your patient may be responsible for paying charges for services deemed not medically necessary by the insurance carrier.

Specimen Handling

When prior authorization services are requested, Mayo Clinic Laboratories will extract and store the DNA from the specimen on arrival and verify patient insurance coverage prior to sample analysis.

The following billing guidelines apply:

  • If the expected patient out-of-pocket expense is $200 or less after prior authorization services, Mayo Clinic Laboratories will proceed with the testing and file an insurance claim upon final result.
  • If the expected patient out-of-pocket expense is greater than $200, Mayo Clinic Laboratories will seek approval from the contact listed on the Prior Authorization documents before proceeding with testing.
