In some states* existing laws require healthcare providers (HCPs) to obtain informed consent for genetic tests. Due to changing state laws and regulations, it is the HCP’s responsibility to verify whether they practice in a state where informed consent is required prior to ordering genetic testing. If the HCP does practice in a state where informed consent is required, there is a section on the Test Request Form (TRF) labeled Healthcare Provider’s Signature where a signature is required to begin test processing. A copy of an Informed Consent Form is available below (also included in the test kit). Please contact your Myriad Customer Service Specialist at 800-469-7423 for additional information.
