Abstract

We surveyed national Helicobacter pylori diagnostic testing practices and diagnoses using commercial and Medicare medical claims data from Optum Labs (Cambridge, MA). Serologic testing for antibodies to H. pylori remains the most commonly ordered diagnostic test despite recent expert recommendations. Changes in reimbursement for serologic testing will likely drive future provider ordering practices.
