No. ClarityX works with a network of physicians licensed in all 50 states to review and authorize your ClarityX test.
Once we have received your sample at the lab, it takes approximately 7-10 business days to complete the review and analysis.
Unlike a hereditary DNA test, we only analyze very specific genes related to drug metabolism. We do not keep, store or use your genetic data in any way, other than necessary for processing your report. We destroy your sample once it is processed.
ClarityX does not accept health insurance. Insurance can be very tricky, some insurance companies may cover pharmacogenetic testing only if you have a specific diagnosis and are taking certain prescription medications. Most insurances may deny claims and patients may be stuck with high out-of-pocket costs. ClarityX strives to make testing accessible to everyone.
One of our clinical pharmacists certified in pharmacogenomics will review the results with your doctor to ensure proper implementation of the findings in your report.
Yes. You should be able to use funds set aside in either a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA) to get reimbursed for the cost of your ClarityX test.
Yes! You can purchase a ClarityX test for someone else or your child. When they receive the ClarityX test they will activate their test kit online on our website. If the individual taking the test is a minor, a parent or guardian is required to give consent before completing the activation process.

ClarityX has one of the most comprehensive reports available. If the medication you take is not on our report it’s because there is not enough clinical evidence to show that genetic variants are identified. We only incorporate the most up to date clinical guidance from key scientific and governing organizations including Clinical Pharmacogenetics Implementation Consortium (CPIC) and the Federal Drug Administration (FDA).
We believe that everyone should take the ClarityX test before taking any kind of prescription medications. In the event you are prescribed medication in the future you can share the results with your treating provider to ensure you are prescribed the right medication at the optimal dose based on your DNA.
