Through our mental health platform, Tempus helps you create a personalized care plan for your patients with neurological and psychiatric conditions, such as depression and other diagnoses.

In addition, Tempus is building the world’s largest dataset of matched clinical and molecular psychiatric patient records. Tempus is providing access through the Tempus+ program to participating institutions to accelerate advancements to clinical care.

Going beyond pharmacogenomics (PGx) with whole exome sequencing and robust clinical data

The Tempus platform for personalized psychiatric care allows providers to easily track their patient’s progress over time and delivers deep molecular profiling on every patient. Our proprietary whole-exome panel allows us to deliver clinically actionable pharmacogenomic results while simultaneously generating data on all 20,000+ genes to begin drawing insights that go beyond pharmacogenomics.

In addition to our smart genetic test, the Tempus PRO™ app makes it seamless for patients to record their symptoms between appointments. With this valuable information, you can more easily track your patient’s response to treatment.

How to order a Tempus test and enroll your patient in Tempus PRO™

All Tempus tests must be ordered by a healthcare provider. Collection kits to obtain a saliva sample can be sent to your clinic or can be shipped directly to patients. Our kits include easy-to-follow instructions and packaging for convenient and fast shipping to our lab.

Seeing patients remotely? Saliva collection kits can be sent directly to patients. And, the Tempus PRO™ app is a great option to collect information from patients remotely.

Tempus accepts all insurance plans. We will work with insurance to submit for reimbursement. If coverage is denied, Tempus will file an appeal(s) on the patient’s behalf. Most patients pay $295 (our self-pay price) or less for testing. We feel it’s important to provide cost transparency so that your patient is not surprised by a bill from Tempus. As a result, Tempus will call or email any patient expected to owe more than $295 before proceeding with the test to discuss their payment options.

Tempus also has a financial assistance program to help provide access to our tests for patients in financial need.

For more information or to apply for financial assistance, patients can visit access.tempus.com, call us at 800-739-4137 or email billing@tempus.com.
