Germline gene mutation tests (Items 73295, 73296, 73333 73392, 73395, 73416 and 73419)

Items 73295, 73296, 73304, 73333, 73392, 73395, 73416 and 73419.

Patients who are found to have any form of affected allele should be referred for post-test genetic counselling as there may be implications for other family members. Appropriate genetic counselling should be provided to the patient either by the specialist treating practitioner, a genetic counselling service or a clinical geneticist on referral.

Items 73416 and 73392

The rapidly expanding field of genomic medicine has resulted in recognition of an increasing number of genetic causes of
cardiac diseases. Use of genomic testing methods that permit reanalysis of existing data for variants in newly described
clinically relevant genes are recommended/encouraged.
