Rosetta GenomicsRosetta Genomics Ltd, Rehovot, Israel, with US headquarters in Princeton, NJ, has contracted directly with FedMed Inc, Rockville, Md, and Fortified Provider Network Inc (FPN), Scottsdale, Ariz, for Rosetta’s Cancer Origin Test™.

“Together with Medicare reimbursement, we estimate that the total number of potential covered lives for which the Cancer Origin Test could be adjudicated as ‘in-network’ exceeds 100 million,” says Kenneth A. Berlin, president and CEO. “We continue to pursue additional agreements with other PPOs as they provide faster payment while maintaining acceptable levels of reimbursement, and also reduce costs incurred through appealing denials.”
