As part of your annual physical or exam, you will be assigned the Genetic and Wellness Assessment (GWA) to evaluate your level of risk for certain health conditions. Based on your answers, you will have the opportunity to request an order be placed by your physician for genetic testing.
- If you are interested in learning about you risk for certain cancers, heart conditions, and how your body might process certain medications, the Genetic Health Screen is available to you at a patient portion cost of $99.
- If you have a family history of cancer, we also offer a hereditary cancer test that is billed to your insurance through our testing partner, Sema4.
- Your results can help your physician develop a screening and prevention plan best tailored to you.
