I thought CF was standard prenatal blood work? They carelessly missed it with my first until I was 26 weeks then I found out I am a carrier. They then tested DH and found out he is not and then they said it should be fine. Is that not the case for most CF screening?
My insurance covered a whopping $21 of the Counsyl NIPT test even though I'm AMA.
Our doctor and her medical assistant (who are notoriously terrible at billing lol) initially told us insurance doesn't cover it at all and it's $650 out of pocket for their patients for whatever company they use.
I made several calls to different testing companies, my insurance, and labs and found that for MaterniT21, my insurance covers $355 and the patient pays $745. Steep... BUT that counts towards our deductible and out of pocket max! We were going to hit the out of pocket max this year regardless with baby and insurance covers 100% after that, so now we will just hit it a little earlier. And we can use our HSA to pay for it! So excited to make my appointment and do the genetic screening and find out the sex in the next few weeks!

I went to LabCorp this morning to have my MaterniT21 Plus Core NIPT done. We should know the chromosomal screening results and sex in ~5 business days!
Annoyed because we got an email from Counsyl yesterday saying they received our samples and so results should be two weeks from that date. I thought it was two weeks from the date of our draw (Tuesday)...I already hate waitin and now this has tacked on another half week. Womp.
