Frequently Asked Questions
Will my insurance pay for telegenetic services?
- If one of our partner institutions referred you to us, your genetic counseling service might already be covered. Please contact us to learn more.
- Some insurances do cover the cost of genetic counseling. We also offer self-pay rates for our patients.
- Most insurance companies will cover the cost of a genetic lab test if it will improve a person’s medical care and they have a reasonable chance of having an inherited condition.
What is an inherited condition?
An inherited condition is a medical condition or a trait that can be passed down from parent to child. Genes are the instructions that our bodies use to grow and function. If one of these genes has a change in it, it cannot work correctly, which can put us at a higher risk for developing symptoms related to having a variation in that specific gene.
What questions are asked at a genetic counseling appointment?
- Which relatives have had symptoms that may indicate an underlying genetic condition?
- How old were they when they developed these symptoms?
- What type of symptoms did they have?
- Has anyone in the family had a diagnosis of a genetic condition?
- Have they had genetic testing? If so, what were the results?
How can genetic counseling help me?
- Based on your genetic test results, your doctor may want to offer specialized screening or management options to keep you healthy
- You may want to consider ways to reduce the chance of developing symptoms related to specific genetic findings.
- You could share information with your relatives so they can determine their own risk of developing certain genetic conditions and stay healthy.
