Your doctor may have to write a letter to explain the medical necessity of having testing done. For us, we had to have the doctor provide a case history and a letter of medical necessity. The review process took 3 days to 2 weeks.
We had the testing done 2 years ago. At the time, GeneDX cost about $400 per gene to test just the hot spots - the areas most likely to have a mutation. It we wanted the entire gene sequenced, it would have been about $1200. I wouldn't be surprised if the cost has gone up now.
Ichthyosis-en-Confetti Type 2
Husband, Nathan - 10, Elliot - 7, Oliver - 4, all affected.
I also have an unaffected daughter, age 8.
