The answer to this question currently is, No. Insurance companies do not view DNA paternity tests as a medical procedure. Therefore, they do not cover the cost. Each insurance company like Medicaid, Tricare, or Life Insurance companies, has different guidelines for handling unique situations.
Can you get free DNA test?
DNA Clinics do not offer free DNA testing. You can only access this service through a private company. Companies offering free DNA testing are using false advertising. DNA Clinics provide the DNA test kit free of charge, with payment for the test due on return of your samples.
Is genetic testing during pregnancy covered by insurance?
While the cost of genetic testing for pregnancy can range from less than $100 to over $1,000, most tests are covered by insurance. Insurance is more likely to cover testing if a pregnancy is considered high risk for a genetic or chromosome condition, but many options are covered in low risk pregnancies as well.
How much does it cost to get a DNA test while pregnant?
Costs will vary, depending on which types of procedures are performed. Prices can range from $400.00 to $2,000.00. Non-invasive prenatal testing is often more costly than testing done after a baby is born because of the technologies used to isolate the fetal DNA from the mothers DNA.
