ACOG Win! Major Payer Updates Coverage Guidelines to Align with ACOG NIPT Recommendation

Following outreach from ACOG regarding updated clinical guidance on non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT), Centene – the nation’s largest Medicaid managed care organization – updated their coverage policies to reflect ACOG’s recommendations.

This means that individuals enrolled in Centene Medicaid managed care plans across 24 states will now have the opportunity to screen for NIPT without barriers or restricted coverage. ACOG continues to engage with other health plans regarding coverage for NIPT and encourage them to align their coverage policies with ACOG’s clinical guidance.
