The PreTRM® test is a new blood test that will predict your risk for delivering prematurely for this pregnancy. Your blood is tested during your 19th or 20th week of pregnancy; the PreTRM test detects protein levels in your blood that are highly predictive of premature birth.
Knowing you are at risk of delivering your baby too early gives you time to plan and prepare for a potential premature delivery.
The PreTRM test costs $945, which is similar to other complex laboratory tests. Because the PreTRM test is new, it is not covered by insurance at this time. Your doctor will order the test and fill out a Test Request Form for you to take to your local LabCorp Patient Service Center. You can visit www.LabCorp.com to find a location close to you or call/email our PreTRM support line at 801-990-6605 or Support@PreTRM.com. Payment will be collected at the LabCorp Patient Service Center when your blood is drawn for testing. It takes about two weeks to get your results, which are sent to your doctor directly.
