Genetic Counseling by Phone

Lots of things run in families. Hair color. Height. Some types of breast, ovarian and colorectal cancers may be inherited, too.

No one can say for sure who will get one of these diseases. But if you learn about the risks, you can take positive action. The Genetic Counseling program from Aetna can help.

It includes:

  • An online prescreening questionnaire
  • Guidance from board-certified genetic counselors about results
  • A confidential phone counseling appointment
  • Support before, during and after any testing you have

All these services* are secure and private. Your results are never shared with us or your employer.

Screening tool

Take the free prescreening questionnaire. It’s available online at the Informed Medical Decisions website or by calling 1-800-975-4819.

*Services are subject to copayments, coinsurance and deductibles as applicable under the member's plan. If you are a member affiliated with an independent practice association (IPA), contact your IPA for information about genetic counseling. IPAs are not available in Missouri.
