services for at-risk
Genome Medical can provide genetic counseling and order testing for relatives of patients who tested positive on Invitae gene or panel tests.
What You Need to Know About Family Variant Testing
If one of your relatives has been diagnosed with a genetic condition or learned of an increased risk of a genetic condition through an Invitae test, you could have up to a 50% chance of having the same genetic risk.
HOW IT WORKS
After assessing your family history and risk factors, we help determine if genetic testing is right for you and ensure you are receiving the most appropriate test.
If you decide to pursue testing, we will place the order for you and ship you a saliva collection kit. You can choose whether to just test for the family variant(s) or to get a larger panel.
Invitae Family Variant Testing
If you choose to only test the gene(s) that your relative tested positive for, you can receive testing at no additional charge. To be eligible, your order must be placed within 90 days of your relative’s test report.
If you choose to get a comprehensive panel, you can bill your insurance (the majority of patients pay no more than $100 out of pocket) or pay $250 via credit card and skip billing your insurance provider. Our care team will work with Invitae to make sure you are aware of any potential out-of-pocket charges prior to testing.
During your appointment, the genetic counselor can help you decide which option is best for you.
