Genetic counseling is an essential component of the evaluation and management of HDGC patients and families. Genetic counseling is essential for each and every one of us who may be at risk for any hereditary disease or hereditary cancer syndrome. Certified genetic counselors (CGC) comprise one of the many critical components of patient-centered care.

Please take a moment to register your support for
H.R. 3235 Access to Genetic Counselor Services Act of 2019
The Act would grant the US Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) the authority to recognize certified genetic counselors as healthcare providers and reimburse them for their services. Currently, CMS doesn’t recognize genetic counselors as healthcare providers, and H.R. 3235, the “Access to Genetic Counselor Services Act of 2019,” would require that genetic counselors be reimbursed for counseling Medicare beneficiaries in the same way these services are covered when provided by a physician.
