Coverage for Hepatitis B titers testing

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had their Hepatitis B titers done to see if the Hepatitis B vaccine/s took? My gastro ordered the titers on my son's blood work with many other things she was checking. He is about a year since diagnosis and gluten free. My insurance did not cover the Hepatitis B titer bloodwork saying it was not medically necessary. It was explained to me by my gastro that many times the Hep B vaccine does not take in patients with untreated celiac. My son was untreated at the time of the vaccines. Anyway my gastro said this was a standard blood test she ordered. I am going to appeal to my insurance. If anyone else has gone through this I would love your insight. Thanks
