Insurance Information for Patients
The SaliMark™ OSCC test requires a thorough oral exam and evaluation by your doctor and hygenist, followed by a saliva sample collected with a test specific collection kit. The saliva is then analyzed by a specialized laboratory and within a few days, a report is provided to your doctor, who will then advise you on further recommendations for diagnosis and follow up. The charges for your doctor’s services related to this test may be reimbursed by your dental or medical insurance carrier depending on your policy provisions and your particular diagnosis.
Either you or your doctor can submit an ADA Dental Claim Form or CMS 1500 Medical Claim Form using the procedure codes and diagnostic codes that your doctor determines are appropriate for your condition. The laboratory processing fee is separate, but can also be submitted to your medical insurance carrier for consideration for reimbursement.
