Vermillion Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2011 Results
Date:3/27/2012

cologists — the professionals who help define the standard of care for women with ovarian cancer — ordered OVA1 in 2011. The specialist sub-group of gynecologic oncologists supporting OVA1 also grew by 24 in the fourth quarter, bringing the total to more than 275. Given the relatively short period of time this test has been on the market, this represents strong traction and increasing brand awareness within the gynecologist community. This strong progress was matched by increased OVA1 payer coverage in 2011 and the addition of the Department of Defense payer coverage in January 2012.

"The recent approval of a Category 1 CPT code for OVA1 represents a major step towards broader commercial adoption. This approval was supported by peer-reviewed publications and positive coverage decisions, including Medicare. We expect OVA1's unique CPT code to increase OVA1 test volumes, since it will help streamline claims processing and accelerate further coverage and adoption by private payers. While certainly a major achievement for OVA1, it is also a significant endorsement of the unmet clinical need addressed by this important triage test.

"Since improving payer coverage and reimbursement for OVA1 remains our key strategic initiative in 2012, we are continuing to work closely with our partner, Quest Diagnostics, and our territory development managers to both engage with physician offices during the claims process and as well as better educate payers. We believe this two-pronged approach ultimately drives more favorable coverage decisions. We also recently launched a program to encourage local key opinion leaders to work with regional insurance providers and support coverage of OVA1.

"These comprehensive efforts have resulted in OVA1 payer coverage recently being added by Wellmark in South Dakota and Iowa, bringing the total number of independent BlueCross BlueShield plans to 24 or coverage for approximately 38 million lives. Including Medicare a
