Genetic Counseling Services for Health Plans

Empower members to make informed medical decisions while reducing inappropriate medical spend.

Increasingly, genetic testing is requested by patients and ordered by physicians. But, the application of complex genetics in healthcare often requires specialized knowledge and training. So, it’s important that patients have an advocate that will help them navigate the whole process to better understand the pros/cons of genetic testing.  

Genetic counselors ensure that your members meet national guidelines for testing, ensure that the appropriate test is covered by the members’ health plan, and advise on additional or alternate genetic testing options. Our genetic counselors provide guidance directly to many national plan members – and, can advise your members and providers, as warranted by your medical policy.
