Genetic Counselling and Genetic Testing
Typically New Zealand health insurance companies do not provide cover for genetic counselling and testing.
However, we are aware of insurance cover being provided in certain circumstances. We recommend that you discuss your individual situation with your insurance company prior to consultation.
