my happy boy
Is it bad that I have no idea which/what test I had done?? I had the nt scan last Wednesday and had the blood drawn at the hospital the same day. I think he said I have to have blood work done again in 2-3 weeks and the combination of both blood tests and the scan will give the final results. He called it "sequential" testing but didn't say any of the names you guys are referencing above.
My OB uses progenity for NIPT. They have verifi which screens for Trisomy 21, 18, and 13, along with Turner Syndrome, Klinefelter Syndrome, and XYY or XXX (and gives the sex). They also have ntxPanel, which does the carrier screening for Cystic Fibrosis, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, and Fragile X. Both would be covered fully for me (based on my age and insurance), but their negotiated rate is $90 if it wasn't covered for you. That said, since they're already covered for me, I will be having them at my next visit on the 4th. At this point, and at no cost, I don't see any reason not to have them run.
Just got my panorama results back and we are low risk for everything. And we are team pink!!! I got the results through my doctors office online portal, the natera site still tells me 12/30. So for those checking the natera site give your doctors office/online portal a try. My blood was drawn last Monday 12/19 and the results were posted this morning.
I had the Materni21 test with my first since I'm considered AMA (advanced maternal age). I am doing Harmony with this pregnancy. My OB doesn't do Materni21 anymore. I would say for everyone considering be careful with your deductibles. I was told the max out of pocket I would pay was $200. I got a bill for $700 because I hadn't met my deductible. My OB office was great and fought it for me but I was still a pain. This time around I was going to go do it before Christmas until I found out the non-insurance price went up the Friday before to 350. I have a 1750 deductible so was just going to pay out of pocket cause I had been told 150. My deductible resets Jan 1st so I am going to wait. They said with insurance expect a 1500 bill but it will go towards my deductible which I will have to pay anyways.
Just got my Harmony results back! Very low risk for everything and baby is a girl!!!!I wasn't expecting any results until after New Years, so this was such a pleasant call.
