PPRx plans have exclusive personal formulary design based on guidance from a DNA test.
Pharmacogenetic Testing is the analysis of certain genes known to determine how individuals will react to certain drugs. The PPRx test uses this new technology and allows your doctor to replace “trial and error” prescribing with more efficient, genetically informed plan personized just for the plan member.
One simple test covers over 300 medications / 11 therapeutic categories
- Anti-Depressant / Anti-Anxiety
- Infectious Diseases
- Pain Management
How does this test work?
This is a non-invasive test. Your DNA is collected from a cheek swab, then sent off to the lab. A team of scientists analyze the DNA and generate a report that shows which drugs and doses are genetically compatible, and any drugs you should avoid that may not work at all or cause serious problems.
What are the benefits of the PPRx test?
The information that will allow your doctor to move beyond the current “one-size-fits-all” approach to treatment and choose medications and dosages that are best for the plan member. Some gene variations can even affect the safety and efficacy of certain drugs, so this information is vital to your health and wellbeing. The knowledge this test provides can lead to more effective drug treatment, a decrease in adverse reactions, and ultimately a better result for the plan member. This simple, reliable, and affordable test was designed to save time reduce treatment cost, and improve quality of life.
The PPRx test is an affordable diagnostic test gives every patient the peace of mind that the medication they are taking is the best type for them. It also leads to lower costs and improved patient outcomes.
