Centogene Charity Testing Program
Testing for rare hereditary diseases is becoming more important but also a common diagnostic tool,
especially as newer and more effective options for the treatment of certain diseases have become available.
Most insurance carriers cover genetic testing services. But each situation is unique. If a patient is uninsured or unable to cover the costs otherwise, Centogene is offering genetic and biochemical testing at no charge on a research basis through our Centogene Charity Testing Program (CCTP).
At Centogene, we are dedicated to offer the greatest medical benefit to every patient.
This is always at the forefront of all our activities.
CCTP is a free-of-charge testing for patients who meet the criteria. To qualify for our program, the
CCTP application form has to be properly completed and submitted, along with a completed lab requisition form. Additionally, detailed clinical information must be provided together with a signed consent form that the patient agrees that Centogene is allowed to use resulting data for scientific purposes - in close collaboration with the attending physician. This data my be presented at scientific congresses or published in scientific articles in an anonymous manner to further deepen the public understanding of diagnosis and clinical treatment by interpreting the right phenotype-genotype correlation in connection. It is always Centogene’s policy to keep all data strictly confidential and protecting extensively the patient’s personal information.
