Genetic Testing Providers
This chart highlights coverage by some of the leading genetic testing labs of the most commonly requested clinical areas of testing (e.g., testing for gene mutations associated with cancer, cardiovascular disease and neurodevelopmental disorders). It also highlights their genetic counseling requirements, types of testing offered, lab certifications, insurance acceptance and availability of financial assistance.
It is noteworthy that genetic testing has become much more affordable in the last few years, resulting in lowering the barriers to access genetic testing. Links are provided to the websites for the genetic testing labs highlighted in this chart, where genetic testing prices are found to begin at $250 by clinical area by one or more of the labs. Also note that if a genetic mutation is identified as a result of the test, some labs offer follow-up family variant testing for first-degree relatives either free of charge or at a reduced cost. Some form of financial assistance is also available by most of these genetic testing labs.
