TeleGenetics Program

The Johns Hopkins ARVD/C TeleGenetics Program provides timely specialized genetic counseling services to those who are unable to access a cardiac genetic counselor within their geographic location. After review of pertinent medical records, our genetic counselor will determine the most appropriate genetic test and discuss the risks, benefits, and limitations of the specific testing recommended.

The cost of a Johns Hopkins ARVD/C telegenetics consultation is $500.00. Payment is due at the time of the request and consultations will not be scheduled without payment. Major credit cards (Mastercard, Visa, American Express and Discover) are the accepted means of payment. A receipt for services will be mailed to you. Currently, this service is unable to be billed directly to your insurance. You may submit it to your insurance for consideration of reimbursement after your consultation if you wish.  

There is a separate fee for the actual genetic test that will be billed to your insurance and cost will be determined based on the specific test ordered, as well as your insurance benefits.
