RBCC: Insurance Companies, Researchers Drive Growth in Personalized Medicine

  RBCC: Insurance Companies, Researchers Drive Growth in Personalized Medicine  Business Wire  NOKOMIS, Fla. -- July 11, 2013  As Rainbow Coral Corp. (OTCBB: RBCC) works to develop new ways to capture a share of the fast-growing, $232 billion personalized medicine market, molecular pathology tests are rapidly transitioning from the laboratory to the clinic.  GEN magazine reported this month that clinical laboratories began billing for more than 100 molecular pathology tests using new CPT codes on the first of this year, replacing the previous stacked-code system. That means the valuable testing will be available to more patients through their insurance providers, opening up personalized medicine to a much wider audience.  “We’re beginning to see patient care billers recognize that these tests work and provide value to the patient, the physician and the healthcare system,” said RBCC CEO Patrick Brown. “That’s a big breakthrough: Insurance coverage decisions and physician test usage are big drivers of clinical utility.”  RBCC is developing a comprehensive media and marketing strategy designed to introduce new innovations and treatment options in a U.S. personalized medicine market poised for major expansion. PricewaterhouseCoopers predicts that the sector could grow to as much as $452 billion by 2015. One of the fastest-growing fields in the market is companion diagnostics, which could grow to as large as $42 billion by 2015, according to industry analysts TriMarkPublications.com.
