Chiron offers full reimbursement for viral load test
Finally some financial relief has arrived for those smacked with big bills for viral load tests. Chiron Corp., which makes one of the HIV RNA tests, has launched a reimbursement hotline to help people secure payment for the $200-a-pop procedure that many health plans still refuse to cover. Chiron Reimbursement Service (CRS) acts as a liaison with the insurance provider and can help with benefit verification, appeals of denied claims and pre-authorizations of coverage. A viral load test can help doctors measure the level of viral activity; people needing assistance can call CRS at 800.775.7533.
