Frequently Asked Questions

Genetix Health Institute Services

What happens if I need to see a specialist?

Our team of medical experts will be able to recommend you to any one of a number of exceptional specialists including urologists, nephrologists, cardiologists, psychologists, neuroradiologists, orthopedists, and many others. Our team will then collaborate with your specialist to ensure that all notes are cross referenced and that your team of medical experts is aware of all your medications and test results.

Do you offer same day appointments?

For our Concierge members we always try to give first priority to first available appointments with our medical staff.  If you are coming in for an IV treatment, body scan, or nutraceutical consultation, we gladly accept same day appointments.

How do prescriptions work?

We issue typical name brand and generic prescriptions to your preferred pharmacy. Those costs are handled directly with your insurance as any typical prescription from an issuing physician. For specialty compounded prescriptions, we recommend a few select compounding pharmacies who specialize in the type of compounding medication being prescribed. Those costs are also handled directly with your insurance as with any other prescription.

How does Genetix work with my health insurance?

Genetix Concierge plans are independent of your health insurance meaning there is no co-pay, no deductible and no late notification of additional balances due.  However, since Genetix Concierge clients have the option of using our Telemedicine services for their primary care needs, those costs should be covered by most insurance plans.

What is your approach to medical care?

Genetix takes a comprehensive and individualized approach to preventive care.  We are all different and our bodies process vitamins and food differently.  We look beyond the obvious into our genetic makeup to best determine how to make processes more efficient while making each of us feel better with more sustainable excellent health.

Pricing & Insurance

What are the payment options for the program?

Genetix offers a 3-tiered Concierge program and a simple “pay as you go” option. The three levels of the Concierge program offer a variety of comprehensive products and services all-inclusive in a bundled monthly fee format, billed annually. The “pay as you go” version presents less of a value to our clients since typical clients visit 4-8 times during the first year and 2-4 times in subsequent years. Our concierge platform presents a more value-oriented approach to our clients with numerous short and long-term benefits.

Why is the concierge plan a better value for me?

The first few years with Genetix are exciting and take a bit more time than later years. The idea is that we are benchmarking and establishing protocols for implementing new baselines. Those tests and visits involve a methodology which is both precise and calculated.

On a per visit basis, the 4 office visits alone would typically cost in the $1,800 range. Blood labs can range between $400 – $600, DNA analysis costs range between $350 and $700, and nutrition expert consultation fees can vary depending upon the level of need. That does not even factor in the discounts on nutraceuticals, additional blood labs, and follow-up body composition analysis. Our tiered Concierge plans present exceptional value to our clients.

Can I use my HSA account for Genetix services and products?

Absolutely.  You may use your pre-tax HSA account dollars for any Genetix services and products, including month fees for our Concierge platforms.

Testing Details

What types of blood testing are screened and how are those costs handled?

Genetix has consolidated many of the available test screens into specific categories based upon your collaborative goals with our medical team. Click here for details on our specific blood programs. Blood labs are handled independently with an outside lab and can be processed through your current insurance (where applicable).

How does the genetic testing work?

Genetix has categorized your genetic analysis into specific categories relevant to individual protocols required for optimal preventive health care. Weight management, aging, nutrient analysis, athletic performance and precursors for disease are all packaged independently. Reports are graphic, easy to read and provide specific details for your Genetix medical team to create an individualized program tailored to each individual’s needs.

How does the 3-D body composition analysis work?

The 3D analysis creates a dense and detailed 3D image of the user from a 40 second scan. The 3D scan automatically extracts hundreds of circumference, length, contour, caliper, width, height, volume, and surface area measurements from the user’s 3D image.

After the scan is processed, you will receive a detailed report and image analysis by email. Your Genetix medical team can then use your data to evaluate your 3D image, measurements, and trends from the 3D web platform.

You are provided with visual and easy to access information for the following:

  • 3D scan images from various perspectives
  • Body composition assessment including body fat percentage, total lean mass, total fat, mass, and height and weight
  • Illustrated trends associated with each assessment to see how your data is changing over time
  • Dozens of precise measurements illustrate how body composition is distributed

The measurement and comparison page serves as an excellent opportunity to show you how your comprehensive Genetix program is impacting body measurements.
