How much does genetic testing cost?

At Sydney Cancer Genetics, genetic testing is organised separately from your medical consult. There is never any obligation to have a genetic test.

We make no money from any testing ordered so you know we are always acting in your interest. The cost of genetic testing is always discussed up front, along with the potential benefits and limitations of testing.

Genetic testing can cost from $200 to over $1000 depending on what testing is done. Genetic testing is not usually covered by either Medicare or private health insurance. However, if certain criteria are met, the cost of testing may be covered by your hospital. We will always offer this if you are eligible.
