Cancer Genetics Inks Coverage Agreement With Illinois Blue Cross Blue Shield

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Cancer Genetics today announced it has arranged an in-network provider agreement with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois to offer cancer diagnostic services.

Under the terms of the agreement, BCBS Illinois' network will have access to Cancer Genetics' full range of oncology-focused tests. The insurance plan covers 7.3 million people in the state.

Financial details were not disclosed.

BCBS Illinois is part of Health Care Service Corporation, the fourth largest insurer in the country, which also includes BCBS networks in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Montana.

The Rutherford, New Jersey-based firm said in a statement that establishing relationships with leading payers is part of its reimbursement strategy. In April, Cancer Genetics signed a deal with America's Choice Provider Network to provide its cancer diagnostic services. In July, the firm signed a similar deal with Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare.
