How It Works

Step 1: Your Doctor Visit

During your doctor visit, either your doctor or a healthcare provider will discuss your screening and testing options and provide you with instructions to use the bas-IL App.

How It Works

Step 2: Your Health Insurance Preauthorization

After logging into the bas-IL App via a secure server, we will ask you to provide your updated insurance information so that we can confirm test coverage with your health plan.

We will let you and your doctor know if the test is covered and the estimated amount of your out of pocket costs.

How It Works

Step 3: Your Family History Intake

By completing your family history intake form, your doctor will be able to ensure that you are offered appropriate testing.

How It Works

Step 4: Pre-Test Patient Education

Before consenting to having testing, your doctor would like to ensure that you understand what the test does and does not do.

By viewing the interactive video, you will gain a better understanding of the test advantages and limitations.

Hyperlinks are available throughout the video if you want additional information on a given topic.

Additional patient information is available on our site by clicking on any of the Point of Care Applications and Knowledge Portal.

How It Works

Step 5: Electronic Informed Consent

You will be able to either consent or decline to testing when signing the Informed Consent Form with your healthcare provider.

This can be done either face to face with your healthcare provider or using audiovisual.

How It Works

Step 6: Laboratory Test Results

A laboratory test requisition will be generated which you can print and present to have your bloods drawn. Test results would then be returned to your doctor in time for your next appointment.
