CENTRALIZED ADVISORY PROGRAM FOR THE AUTHORIZATION OF GENETIC SERVICES (CAPAGS)

The goal of this project is to assist insurance companies in determining authorization or denial of genetic services. More specifically, this project seeks to create a centralized review program that allows for more accurate, efficient, and expert review of genetic services requests. This work group has designed an organizational chart and has expert reviewers for the program.

The group is currently seeking a state or private insurer to pilot the project. IRB approvals remains updated until 6/1/2017 through the Hawaii Department of Health.
