Noninvasive Prenatal Testing Migrates Toward Average-Risk Market in 2015

Published: 1/16/2016

Anthem, like most insurers, previously deemed NIPT medically necessary only for high-risk pregnancies, and the change makes Anthem one of the first major payors to say that the technology is medically necessary also for average- and low-risk pregnancies.
