You're here because your doctor believes ibs-smart™️ could provide valuable information to help diagnose your symptoms. Here are a few things to know before you get started:
ibs-smart™️ is a blood test.
All we need is a blood sample. We'll provide you with a kit to take to any doctor's office, hospital or phlebotomy lab where you can get your blood drawn. Here are some options.
ibs-smart™️ tests for levels of two antibodies.
If either is elevated, you can be confidently diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
The positive predictive value of each antibody is over 91%. If both antibodies are elevated, the probability of IBS is 98%.
ibs-smart™️ costs $220.
It may be covered at least in part by your insurance.
$220 is collected prior to shipping you a testing kit. Once we receive your sample and deliver your test results to your doctor, we'll also send you a superbill. You can then file a claim with you insurance provider using the superbill. (Please contact your insurance provider to determine where to obtain and send a claim form).
Test results will be sent to your doctor four days after we receive your blood sample.
If you have any questions about this process, please contact us.
