Many health plans require a prior authorization and/or documentation of appropriate genetic counseling before genetic testing can be performed. It is important that an independent genetic counselor provide this pre-test counselling to patients. PerkinElmer Genomics can facilitate the release of patient information to an independent third party for this purpose. Alternatively, to locate a genetic counselor in your area, please visit www.nsgc.org.
