Theranos and Capital BlueCross Team Up to Provide Innovative, Low Cost, Accessible Lab Testing Services in Central Pennsylvania
Jul 8 15
Theranos, Inc. and Capital BlueCross announced a long-term partnership to introduce Theranos™ revolutionary technology and laboratory services across the region to Capital BlueCross members. The companies have been working together for the last several years to form a strategic partnership in which Theranos™ low-cost, high quality laboratory services will be introduced to Central Pennsylvania. The companies also intend to showcase the impact of Theranos™ services around lowering the cost of care in areas where costs for medical diagnostic testing are high due to the lack of availability of health care resources. Theranos, which received clearance of its lab technology from the FDA last week, is the first lab to publish all of its pricing, and all of its tests are at least 50% below the Medicare reimbursement rate. Theranos will make available its full menu of tests in Central Pennsylvania "from full fertility panels ($35) to simple cholesterol tests ($2.99). In addition to its pricing, Theranos delivers unparalleled transparency around the quality of its testing. As it develops new testing services, the company has committed to submit all of its laboratory-developed tests to FDA for review and approval, and is the only lab to publish and update test proficiency data and customer satisfaction metrics on its website. Theranos has already performed millions of tests since its launch and continues to provide full service labs and testing throughout Arizona and Palo Alto, California. Capital BlueCross reviewed the accuracy and quality of Theranos' systems, technology, science, processes and overall performance over several years.
