Is Viome covered by my insurance? Can I use my HSA or FSA to pay for Viome?
We accept HSA/FSA payments. However, we encourage you to check your plan for coverage prior to purchase as individual plans will vary. Since we do not directly request reimbursement from insurance or FSA/HSA, we are unable to provide an itemized cost for each service or CPT codes.
If you have questions about whether or not your insurance provider may reimburse you for Viome service, we recommend reaching out to them directly.
How long will it take to receive results, and what can I expect from my results?
Viome's results and recommendations take up to 4 weeks after the lab receives your sample and completed questionnaires. Once your results are available, you’ll receive an email notification.
The results that you receive from Viome include a full list of the active organisms found in your sample, 20 personalized gut microbiome scores that reflect the current state of your microbiome, and personalized food recommendations. Your recommendations are based on the activity of your microbes and the information you provide.
Your food recommendations are classified into four ranks to help you achieve your optimal balance. These are: Superfoods, Enjoy foods, Minimize foods, and Avoid foods. Your lists highlight foods that will boost beneficial functions or suppress harmful functions of your active microbes. No single recommendation applies to everyone. One food may be beneficial for one person, neutral for another, and harmful to others.
Your recommendations are unique to you! It takes about 90 days to see the effects of a new diet on your microbiome, so sticking to your recommendations is key. Focusing on eating the right foods and adding diversity to your diet is just as important as staying away from those Avoid foods when it comes to coming into balance.
You may receive recommendations for supplements if our team of medical doctors, nutritionists, and naturopathic doctors see that you may benefit from these. These typically come in the form of a prebiotic, probiotic, or supplement of polyphenols.
We have many customers who experience a wide range of benefits after following our recommendations including better digestion, improved sleep, weight loss, and overall improvement of mood. However, every experience is unique, and everyone will experience benefits unique to their own body and state of health.
