In a medical policy update with an effective date of Dec. 19, 2012, health insurer Wellpoint (WLP) stated that it views cell-free fetal DNA-based prenatal screening for fetal aneuploidies, including but not limited to Trisomy 13, Trisomy 18 and Trisomy 21, medically necessary for its members when certain criteria are met. Wellpoint stated there are currently several commercially available laboratory developed tests which analyze circulating cell-free DNA to identify increased representation of various chromosomes, including but not necessarily limited to the Sequenom's (SQNM) MaterniT21 Test and its MaterniT21 Plus Test, among others from Verinata Health and Aria Diagnostics. In early morning trading, shares of Sequenom rose 32c, or 6.84%, to $4.96, with the strength being attributed by some to Wellpoint's approval. Reference Link
