Biomarker AssistTM provides savings on tests that help identify the KRAS G12C mutation. Biomarker AssistTM is comprised of two programs:
Program is valid for testing performed through December 31, 2022.
Mechanism of Disease
Overview of the role of KRAS G12C in cancer
Overcoming Testing Challenges in the Rapidly Evolving Landscape of NSCLC
An overview of biomarker testing in NSCLC, including the most common barriers to testing and how to overcome them
Key Considerations in Biomarker Testing Journey in NSCLC
A podcast featuring Dr. Pranil K. Chandra, who discusses the importance of testing, practice considerations for tissue preservation, and scenarios where liquid biopsy may be preferred
A resource that contains an overview of the biomarker testing landscape in NSCLC, including prevalence, guideline recommendations, and considerations for testing
A presentation providing disease state education on NSCLC biomarkers, identification, and testing
A brochure that outlines the procedural steps for elements of the testing process, such as verifying coverage, verifying benefits, and billing, as well as a sample billing and coding form
A 2-page document that summarizes how to test, record, and report on KRAS G12C as part of a biopsy, as well as a list of reference labs in the United States that test for KRAS G12C
A resource that outlines the coverage for next-generation sequence testing for many commercial and Medicare insurance plans. A chart of steps for support coverage and prior authorization information is also included
A resource developed by Lungevity that can be used when discussing comprehensive biomarker testing with patients, featuring common questions patients may have and how to answer them
A resource developed by Lungevity about comprehensive biomarker testing for your patients with lung cancer. It also includes helpful tips on when to utilize biomarker testing and some current barriers that you may face. Please see an additional reference to support the information in this factsheet: Billingy NE, et al. Cancers (Basel). 2021;13(17):4282.
A patient-focused disease state education resource that helps inform patients about biomarker testing, the KRAS G12C mutation, and other helpful guidance about these topics
A brief but detailed overview of some questions and answers for patients about the purpose of biomarker testing, what testing for KRAS G12C is meant to accomplish, and how to get tested
A 2-page outline that offers step-by-step guidance for a patient's journey through metastatic NSCLC, including testing, biomarker analysis, and personalized therapy. The second page includes a list of questions for a patient to ask their providers during each step of the journey. This educational resource was developed in partnership with The Academy of Oncology Nurse and Patient Navigators®
An informative list of frequently asked questions developed by Lungevity that patients may have about biomarker testing. The flashcard may help provide patients with a clearer understanding of what occurs with biomarker testing and may help better inform their treatment decisions
Lungevity has developed a patient-directed overview about biomarker testing, what is involved, and what to expect with the testing process
A short discussion guide created by Lungevity to help patients navigate conversations with their healthcare providers. The questions offer a linear path to help patients understand what tests they may need and what the results of those tests mean for them
