WILMINGTON, Del., May 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Kentmere Healthcare Consulting Corporation, the leading outpatient laboratory benefit manager for the managed care industry, announced today the 2nd Annual Kentmere Genetic Testing and Utilization Management Conference, to be held June 23-24, 2016 in Philadelphia at the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia Airport.
At this conference, Health Plans will hear the latest ideas on where they should focus their efforts for genetic testing in the future, as well as the latest news on CMS genetic testing reimbursement and recommendations from national medical and genetic organizations on cancer genetic testing.
Genetic testing utilization management has become a major concern for Health Plans as direct-to-consumer promotions of new genetic tests and panels increase through a constant barrage of news articles and marketing campaigns to both physicians and the general public. Unmanaged genetic testing can create unnecessary, negative downstream medical issues, risks, and increased costs. Deciding which genetic tests provide clinical validity, utility and effectiveness is the first step and proper utilization management is the next step.
Speakers will include national experts in genetics, oncology, medical policy, and laboratory reimbursement.
This conference is designed exclusively for Health Plan and ACO Medical Directors, Network Management Executives, Medical Policy and Reimbursement/Contracting personnel, in addition to anyone involved in utilization management and contracting of genetic and laboratory tests.
