Becoming a Macula Risk testing site is very easy. The first step to take is to contact your local Macula Risk representative. After getting a better understanding of the test and its procedures, most physicians will then schedule a 1 hour webinar at their convenience, or attend the weekly webinar at 6 pm EST to learn more about the testing process.

Best Practices in Clinic Logistics
When preparing to offer Macula Risk testing to your patients, there are a few common questions
that you should review together with your staff to determine the best solution for your clinic:
Who will manage the testing materials, tracking inventory and ordering?
Where will the test kits be stored?
How will the test kits be accessed so that samples can be taken quickly in a suitable environment?
Filling out Forms & proper documentation
Who will explain the Test Requisition Form (TRF) to the patient?
Which office staff member will fill out the TRF ?
Where will the patient fill out their part of the TRF?
How will the clinic document the proper ICD-9 diagnostic code and any other pertinent information?
Who will confirm that all information in the TRF is complete before the patient has left?
What process will be used to ensure the front & back of the patient's insurance card is copied?
How will you confirm that all the needed information is on the biohazard bag before sealing the envelope?
