Does Grey Genetics accept insurance?
At this time we are a direct patient billing service which allows us to eliminate administrative costs and pass those savings on to you. We are happy to provide you with a receipt to send to your insurance company for possible reimbursement after services are rendered. Most commercial insurers do cover genetic counseling; CPT code 96040. You may also be able to use your Health Savings Account (HSA) to pay for genetic counseling services. We accept all major credit cards and HSA.
Does Grey Genetics offer discounts for financial hardship?
Yes! Grey Genetics has a limited number of spots available for low-income patients who have a clear medical indication for pre- or post-test genetic counseling. These appointments are billed on a sliding scale, guided by HHS Poverty Guidelines. Documentation of financial status (ex. tax return) is required and can be sent by secure email using this link.
Does Grey Genetics offer any pro bono services?
If you are a healthcare provider working in a country with limited or no access to genetic counseling and consulting services and serving low-income populations, Grey Genetics may be able to provide some services on a pro bono basis. Any pro bono work must be tied to clear public health goals and done within the framework of a formalized protocol for patient referral and follow-up locally by healthcare providers. Write to us and tell us about your situation!
