When we were there for our ODWU, they repeatedly said during our group orientation and during our individual nurse consult that everyone should have the good start genetics panel done as it is good information and 'every insurance covers it', 'so there's really no reason not to do it'. We said o.k. For DH to go ahead with it as I'm a CF carrier. His previous genetic testing was fine, but this panel was going to check for 500 mutations vs the 50 the other test already checked for. Ok, we weren't real enthused but we said go ahead. So... Insurance was billed for $8,000!! And our portion is $3500! I had no idea. I'm kind of freaking out about it. I thought at most $700 or so. There was so much going on that day and they said it was covered so we didn't get into it. And I'm quite frankly shocked that they didn't at all even elude to the fact that it cost that much. Maybe you should discuss something like that with us first? Any experience with this at all? I've called Ccrm and they haven't called back.
