That’s why we analyze all GeneSight tests at our own accredited clinical laboratory so we can assure you of the quality and security of your test. Our clinical laboratory is CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments) and CAP (College of American Pathologists) accredited and is HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliant.
Your genetic information is protected through various federal laws including HIPAA and GINA (Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act), which ensure the security of your personal and genetic information.
The HIPAA Privacy Rule created national standards to protect your medical records and other personal health information. It gives you more control over your health records and sets rules for healthcare providers and health insurance companies about who can look at and receive your health information. To learn more go to Your Health Information Privacy Rights.
GINA makes it illegal for health insurers to request, require, or use genetic information to make decisions about whether you can get health insurance or how much you would pay for your health insurance. GINA also makes it illegal for your employer to use your genetic information when making decisions about your employment. To learn more, visit GINAhelp.org.
