Aegis PainComp® for Managed Care

Through our PainComp® testing services, we offer significant medical and economic value to managed care organizations. We effectively support government programs, commercial payers and workers’ compensation insurers by providing the most complete and accurate picture of patient compliance.

Our Savings Are Verified

Although the treatment of pain is complex and influenced by multiple variables, our innovative claims-based study with Truven Health Analytics™ – which examined claims data from 80,000 patients – shows Aegis patients incurred fewer healthcare costs compared to patients who underwent mass spectrometry testing by other labs, including 19% fewer ER visits and 12% lower total healthcare costs during a 3-year period.1

Powered by Truven Health Analytics™ MarketScan® Research Databases, this study included thousands of claims over a three year period. In addition to claims, other patient-level data sources include inpatient, outpatient, drug, lab, and benefit design. Patient selection was based on pain diagnoses, continuous opiate prescriptions, and medication compliance testing. Our proprietary approach used a data-matching algorithm to identify Aegis patients, compare outcomes, analyze the cost of care, evaluate the effectiveness of medical treatments, understand prescription drug utilization patterns, and identify downstream costs.

Leveraging Our Experience

There are many labs to consider when developing a network. Over the past few years, numerous new independent and physician labs have emerged. Most market their services without any clear point of differentiation. Aegis has more than 27 years of experience being different from other labs.

  • Ethical


    We do not sell testing supplies or table top analyzers. Our relationships with physicians are focused on improving patient care, not enhancing their revenue.

  • Stable


    Aegis is privately-owned and has a history of financial stability.

  • Compliant


    All labs are audited. We have never received any material adverse determinations or settlements from any agency with regulatory or oversight responsibility.

  • Consultative


    We listen and educate. We do not direct physicians’ treatment plans for their patients.
