CENTOGENE Free of Charge (FOC) Testing Program
At CENTOGENE, we are dedicated to offering the greatest medical benefit to every patient; this is at the forefront of all our activities.
Achieving a positive change in our patient’s life
Testing for rare hereditary diseases is becoming more important and also now a common diagnostic tool, with the arrival of better, more effective options for the treatment of certain diseases.
Most insurance providers cover genetic testing services but each situation is unique. If a patient is un-insured or unable to cover the costs otherwise, CENTOGENE offers genetic and biochemical testing free of charge on a research basis through our CENTOGENE Free of Charge (FOC) Testing Program.
