What is medical-grade genetic testing?
Genetic testing involves looking at your genes, which are the instructions coded in your DNA. Your genes are fundamental to your health and well-being. Be smart’s medical-grade genetic testing analyzes your genes to find changes that can potentially lead to disease.
How is Be smart's genetic test different from other genetic tests that I’ve heard about?
Be smart’s comprehensive tests are the same tests ordered by doctors. When you test with us, you can confidently make health decisions based on your results. Be smart’s tests also include the option to speak with a genetics expert who can help you understand what your results mean for you.
What payment options are available?
Insurance often covers genetic tests related to starting a family; Be smart is in-network for more than 300 million people in the US, with a typical out-of-pocket cost between $0 and $100. Be smart also offers affordable self-pay pricing and accepts HSA/FSA payments.
