Transplants: blood test to test for rejection

I'm a liver and kidney recipient (simultaneous donation). I am 13 years post transplant. I have never heard of the Allosure test. I've only had protocol 1,2,3,5,and 10 year surgical kidney biopsies and will only need another if needed (?). Only post liver biopsy was right after the transplant.

@scottij, @hello1234 - Were/are the Allosure tests in place of a 'routine ' protocol surgical procedure? Or are they an additional test due to rejection signs?

Rosemary,
It is my understanding that they are mutually supportive. So I have allosure/CareDX as a monitor and a biopsy at my annual checkup.
It is a pretty new technology and hence some of the insurance issues I had.
