Genetic Testing for Monogenic Diabetes, Coverage, & Reimbursement

An On-Demand Webinar
 
In this activity, discover the vital role genetic testing plays in diagnosing monogenic diabetes. Not only will you learn about the most prevalent genetic testing techniques, but you'll also gain insights into how to conduct cascade genetic testing for family members. Plus, we'll delve into the various billing options for genetic testing, including reimbursement and the factors that influence coverage decisions.
 
Medium: Video with PPT, eLearning
Activity Length: 24 minutes
