Prenatal Billing Policy
GeneDx accepts all commercial insurance policies. Please be sure to send us complete insurance information, and include a copy of the front and back of the insurance card. GeneDx will bill insurance, and conduct the appeal process as necessary until all options are exhausted. The patient will be responsible for any co-pay, co-insurance and unmet deductible amounts that their policy dictates*. Credit card information is required for all Blue Cross, Blue Shield and related plans, GHI, Healthnet, State Health Plan of North Carolina and Teamsters Benefit Trust. If the patient does not provide credit card information with the test requisition, GeneDx will contact the patient before beginning the test.
