New Patients - genetic counseling

Prior to your appointment
Please be sure to fill out the prenatal genetic questionnaire and demographic forms and bring them with you.  It will be helpful to look at the consent form and post procedure instructions online prior to your appointment so you know what to expect after your procedure.

Insurance coverage
Please review the Procedure Fees sheet online.  It is important that you verify coverage with your insurance company prior to your appointment.  Our office sends all samples to Henry Ford Hospital for genetic testing.  Your insurance may only cover certain labs.  It is the responsibility of the patient to verify coverage.

To help you find out if the consultation and procedure will be covered, you can call your insurance company and ask if the following CPT codes are covered:
•       Amniocentesis  (59000)
•       Chorionic villus sampling  (59015)
•       FISH (florescence in situ hybridization)  (88272 & 88274)
