Genetic Carrier screening gives individuals and couples information about their risk of having a child with a genetic condition.
Carriers of commonly inherited conditions such as Cystic Fibrosis (CF) , Fragile X Syndrome (FXS) and Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) are generally healthy adults with no family history of the disorder and consequently unaware of their carrier status.
Our Genetic Carrier Screen is a simple blood test that can be arranged through your doctor.
Virtus Genetic Carrier Screening is not covered by Medicare and a fee of $400 is charged. This expense can go towards out of pocket tax deduction.
