Glycominds is committed to excellent service to you and your physicians, providing the most advanced clinical lab technology and reporting system. The gMS® are innovative tests that use a blood sample to help doctors finalize a diagnosis and manage the care of Multiple Sclerosis. When used together with standard clinical assessments, gMS® tests can help assist your doctor in deciphering whether or not you have MS, and if you have a high probability for rapid disease progression at the time your blood is drawn.
The gMS® tests are performed on the serum separated from your blood after a regular blood draw. Similar to other laboratory tests, the gMS® tests must be ordered by an authorized healthcare provider.
If you have determined that you may be a potential candidate for the gMS® tests, you may want to talk with your doctor about the possibility of getting tested, and for a list of questions and observations that may assist you in your discussions with your doctor about the gMS® tests.
If your doctor has ordered the tests, you do not have to do a thing but hold out your arm. You will either be sent to a laboratory, or a phlebotomist will make arrangements to come to your home to draw a blood sample.
If you and your doctor agree that the test is right for you, you will likely want to find out if the test is covered by your insurance. Our gMS® Co-Pay Advantage™ program ensures that insured patients will not have to pay any amount from their deductible.
Medicare & Medicaid patients will only be charged the regular copay. If you are uninsured, we may be able to assist you via our special program.
