Worried About Your Insurance?
Are you concerned that your insurance company might ding you if you get a positive diagnosis of a gene that could expose you to cancer? The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) prevents health insurers from using your genetic information in coverage and rating determinations. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns in regard to this matter.
501 Pharmacy is Dedicated to Protecting Its Patients
Unfortunately, there are some bad apples out there and Medicare wants to make sure you are safe, as do we. You may have seen some information starting that you need doctor’s authorization before completing a Hereditary DNA test.
Every patient we work with, we require the doctor’s first and last name, address, phone number, fax numbers, NPI, and Tax ID # on our paperwork, and you as the patient must sign this paperwork. By adding this information, our Genetic counselors are responsible for adding the patients’ primary care physician as the referring provider on the Hereditary DNA test.
By working with independent pharmacies, Genetix understands that they take strict guidelines on patient privacy when it comes to DNA swabbing. They only process swabbing in a closed environment with the patient and out of sight from other customers in the pharmacy. Each patient is given a welcome patient packet explaining the time-line, and what they can expect on their results along with the agent’s business card placed in the patient folder.
At Genetix and 501 Pharmacy, we want to be transparent as possible with the patients and communicate through the entire process.
