Laboratory genetic counselors work in many different laboratory settings that can represent a variety of clinical specialties. This chapter explores the various types of laboratories and their resulting business relationships. Genetic counselors working in a laboratory will build important relationships with colleagues from within their own company as well as competitors, clients, and others they work with externally. The laboratory’s specialty and its setting will determine who their clients are and is also directly related to their business model. CPT codes and billing and reimbursement issues are also reviewed in this chapter. The size and success of different billing and reimbursement strategies will ultimately affect the services a laboratory offers as well as how the counselor’s roles will develop in that setting.
