Description Updated:
01-Jul-2018
Schedule Fee Updated:
01-Jul-2018

Group
P7 - Genetics

Testing of a patient for pathogenic cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator variants for the purpose of investigating, making or excluding a diagnosis of cystic fibrosis or a cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator related disorder when requested by a specialist or consultant physician who manages the treatment of the patient, not being a service associated with a service to which item 73347, 73348, or 73349 applies.

The patient must have clinical or laboratory findings suggesting there is a high probability suggestive of cystic fibrosis or a cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator related disorder.



Fee: $500.00 Benefit: 75% = $375.00 85% = $425.00

Group
P7 - Genetics

Testing of a prospective parent for pathogenic cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator variants for the purpose of determining the risk of their fetus having pathogenic cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator variants. This is indicated when the fetus has ultrasonic evidence of echogenic gut when requested by a specialist or consultant physician who manages the treatment of the patient, not being a service associated with a service to which item 73345, 73348, or 73349 applies.

Description Updated:
01-Jan-2020
Schedule Fee Updated:
01-Jul-2018

Group
P7 - Genetics

Testing of a patient with a laboratory-established family history of pathogenic cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator variants, for the purpose of determining whether the patient is an asymptomatic genetic carrier of the pathogenic cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator variants that have been laboratory established in the family history, not being a service associated with a service to which item 73345, 73347, or 73349 applies.

The patient must have a positive family history, confirmed by laboratory findings of pathogenic cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator variants, with a personal risk of being a heterozygous genetic carrier of at least 6%. (This includes family relatedness of: parents, children, full-siblings, half-siblings, grand-parents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, first cousins, and first cousins once-removed, but excludes relatedness of second cousins or more distant relationships).



Fee: $250.00 Benefit: 75% = $187.50 85% = $212.50

Group
P7 - Genetics

Testing of a patient for pathogenic cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator variants for the purpose of determining the reproductive risk of the patient with their reproductive partner because their reproductive partner is already known to have pathogenic cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator variants requested by a specialist or consultant physician who manages the treatment of the patient, not being a service associated with a service to which item 73345, 73347, or 73348 applies.
