Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
How often will I see a practitioner on the ReVERSE Program?
You should connect with your care provider around two to three times a year. Depending on your need, these visits are typically one to three months apart.
How often will labs be run?
Labs are run once for the initial ReCODE Report. If you enroll in the ReVERSE Program, your practitioner will want to reassess you after your treatment starts and may run another set of labs to see how you are progressing.
What is the estimated cost of baseline blood panel labs?
If you sign-up for an one-time initial ReCODE Report, the mobile blood draw labs are $1,245, except for the following seven states: Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania, California, Maryland, Alaska, and Hawaii, where blood-draws must be completed by a lab facility and cost $1,090. However, if you enroll in the ReVERSE program, you can purchase the labs through app.apollohealthco.com, for $940 or $780 for individuals residing in Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania, California, Maryland, Alaska, or Hawaii.
Does Insurance cover my labs?
Individuals ordering their tests through a trained practitioner may qualify for insurance reimbursement, depending on your insurance coverage and practitioner.
How much will the ReVERSE Program cost me if I join at a later date?
If you’ve already purchased an initial one-time ReCODE Report and then choose to sign up for the monthly ReVERSE Program, you will receive a $300 credit.
Could I run the same tests without the one-time ReCODE Report?
No. The ReCODE Report, created with our proprietary software algorithm, uses a specific set of 140+ factors, labs and cognitive and genetic testing created by Dr. Bredesen. The algorithm provides practitioners and you with individualized options to guide you through your journey to better cognitive health.
How much will supplements cost me per month?
The cost of supplements may range from $150 to $450 per month based on the results on the assessment from your One-time ReCODE Report and your practitioner’s recommendations.
How do I know if this program is right for me?
The data gathered with your first ReCODE Report will let you and your practitioner know about your specific risks for Alzheimer’s disease. Based on these results, both of you can make decisions about the best direction for treatment. If you are already experiencing symptoms of cognitive decline, or have a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, the ReVERSE program is the right option for you. This program is designed for individuals who need more resources to combat cognitive decline or the onset of cognitive decline.
As a prevention participant, can I work with my current physician?
Yes, you can work with your current physician. However, you will need to get your blood work done through the one-time ReCODE Report. And your doctor will need to consult a qualified Bredesen Protocol Practitioner so they can instruct your physician on how to enter the data from your labs into the report.
Is my personal and medical information secure?
All of your private, personal, and medical information is stored and secured on our Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliant system. The ReCODE software uses the latest encryption methods to protect all of your data. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Is my credit card or payment method secure?
Our credit card transaction provider is on Visa’s “Global Registry of Approved Service Providers” and therefore meets the PCI Service Provider Level 1 certification, the most stringent level of security qualifications.
How does the ReCODE Report and software work?
The software used to run a One-time ReCODE Report uses a proprietary algorithm to generate a personalized report identifying the type of Alzheimer’s or its precursors. This report provides the information needed for you and practitioners to decide on the best treatment plan if you are suffering from cognitive decline.
Whom do I contact for questions regarding the initial one-time ReCODE Report or the ReVERSE Program?

Why do I need to be signed up through you and then also pay the practitioner?
A qualified Bredesen Trained Practitioner is required and essential for interpreting and entering your lab results into your One-time ReCODE Report. This is done to ensure that your practitioner can adequately assess your treatment plan.
I want to work with my physician since they are willing to support me on The Bredesen Protocol. How can they submit lab results to generate my ReCODE Report on the ReVERSE program?
There isn’t a way for an untrained and unqualified practitioner to enter the lab results into your report, so they need to work with a qualified Bredesen Trained Practitioner. The practitioner will help your physician order the necessary labs, and then will enter the data to generate your ReCODE Reports.
