How the GeneSightTest Works

GeneSight genetic testing analyzes how variations in your genes affect your response to certain psychiatric medications. There are millions of variations that make each of us unique. Even small differences can impact how medications are processed in the body and how effective they will be. The test looks at genetic markers across 59 genes that provide medication guidance for: 

  • Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) like Prozac, Zoloft, and Lexapro
  • Serotonin–norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) like Effexor and Cymbalta
  • Atypical antipsychotics like Abilify, Seroquel, and Risperdal
  • Typical antipsychotics like Haldol and Thorazine
  • Mood stabilizers like lithium and Depakote
  • ADHD medications like Adderall, Ritalin, and Strattera

Based on your test results, medications are categorized into three groups:

  • Use as directed – More likely to work and have fewer side effects
  • Use with caution – May require dosage adjustments or more monitoring
  • Use with increased caution and with more frequent monitoring – Less likely to work and may have more side effects

This takes much of the guesswork out of prescribing and helps doctors select medications that are optimized based on each patient’s unique biology.

The Benefits of GeneSight Testing for Medication

Numerous studies have shown that the GeneSight Test can lead to better patient outcomes when used to guide treatment. Potential benefits include:

  • Fewer medication trial-and-error cycles
  • Quicker relief of symptoms
  • Better medication adherence
  • Reduced risk of side effects
  • Decreased healthcare utilization and costs

Patients who undergo gene testing for psychiatric medication are twice as likely to respond to the first medication tried compared to those who undergo standard prescribing practices. They can expect to feel relief from symptoms in a shorter timeframe—typically within 2 weeks instead of the standard 6-8 weeks.

GeneSight genetic testing also reduces the burden on the healthcare system. A two-year health economics study found that the test decreased hospitalization rates by 30-50%. Patients had 31% fewer emergency room visits and required 38% fewer follow-up appointments.

Affordable Access for All

While the GeneSight test can lead to better outcomes and lower costs over time, the upfront price has been a barrier for some patients in the past. Neuropsychiatric Clinic is now offering this innovative genetic test at a significantly reduced price, making it affordable for all patients regardless of insurance coverage. 

For patients with insurance, the test process is straightforward: 

  • Your doctor orders the GeneSight Psychotropic Test
  • Our staff files a claim with your insurance company
  • You simply pay any copay or coinsurance required by your plan

For uninsured patients or those with plans that do not cover the test, Neuropsychiatric Clinic is now offering the GeneSight test for just $299. This is 70-80% lower than the standard list price.

To take advantage of this reduced price, no insurance filing is required. We work directly with patients on a simple payment plan. This makes evidence-based, genetically-guided treatment accessible to nearly everyone seeking help for mental health conditions.
