FRISCO, Texas, Nov. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — True Health Diagnostics has reached an agreement with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois to provide its leading-edge integrated diagnostics to members of the health insurer’s PPO and BlueChoice networks across Illinois.
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois is the “largest and most experienced health insurance company” in Illinois, according to information provided by the insurer. Illinois makes the fifth state in which True Health has become an in-network diagnostic laboratory provider to a Blue Cross Blue Shield insurer.
“Our ability to offer groundbreaking diagnostics that provide earlier detection of diseases to the members of this network is exciting,” said Chris Grottenthaler, CEO of True Health Group, parent company of True Health Diagnostics. “With our clear and insightful reports, I am confident that clinicians in Illinois can better engage with their patients to help improve outcomes.”
True Health offers innovative biomarker testing for an expanding number of disease states and conditions, including cardiovascular health, diabetes, rheumatic-autoimmune conditions, genetics, and hormone health. Earlier this year, the company added genTrue, an assessment of 26 genes that are indicators of increased hereditary cancer risk for multiple cancer types.
“As a practicing physician, I understand how critical it is to detect disease and identify patient risk as early as possible,” said Kenneth Johnson, MD, Chief Medical Officer of True Health. “I believe clinicians in Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois’ network will find the information True Health provides to be invaluable in building proactive care plans for their patients.”
True Health strives to provide access to its world-class diagnostics and services to as many clinicians and patients as possible, and this agreement with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois expands that access to members across the state of Illinois.
