Just an FYI, the out of pocket cost for my NIPT (Panorama) is $650. Luckily my insurance covers it but thought the info might be helpful for some of you.
May I ask what these abbreviations stand for? I think I know the NT, but I'm not positive. I did scan to see if it was answered, but maybe I overlooked it.
@geminigirl16 I agree completely. Do all the testing! Get all the peace of mind! I’m doing the same thing. This time we’re doing NIPT in addition to chorionic villus sampling . The CVS is to test for CHARGE syndrome. Our first baby had CHARGE. And unfortunately, NIPT doesn’t screen for CHARGE.I’m trying to understand your doctor’s recommendations... NIPT (non invasive prenatal testing) is a blood screen. What kind of blood test is she scheduling in addition to that?
They took four vials for my NIPT draw and two of the vials were pretty big. I did the Panorama with Horizon.
@emily1052, what did you end up deciding about the NT scan?
Hey all!! FTM here and will most likely be doing the NIPT test next week. Question-is it recommended to do NIPT prior to the NT scan? I’m getting all these tests mixed up and for the life of me can’t remember what my doctor said so much information and it’s so overwhelming! Thanks
All results came back low risk! I did not even realize how anxious I had been waiting for the results until I was crying tears of relief. ❤❤❤
Does anyone else's insurance require a prior authorization for the Panorama or similar blood tests? It wasn't even an option for me when I had my second son (he will be three in May) but I would really like to do the early blood test this time around. I'm not sure if I would qualify under insurance since this is my 3rd pregnancy. I don't have any known complications and I am under 35.
