Frequently Asked Questions

How can I get UNITY testing?

UNITY is a physician-ordered test. Please call us or email us at support@unityscreen.com so we can help you get the testing done through your OB or midwife. 

Is UNITY covered by my insurance?

We accept all insurances including Medicaid. Medical guidelines recommend every pregnant woman to be screened for the disorders covered on UNITY, therefore, all major private insurance and Medicaid cover the testing. 

Depending on your insurance details, there may be a co-payment or deductibles you might have to pay. If you have any questions or concerns with testing cost, please email us at support@unityscreen.com or call us at 650-460-2551.

Is UNITY right for me?

American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (medical society for OBGYNs) recommends every pregnant woman to be screened for these disorders.

UNITY screens for commonly inherited disorders: 1 in 25 Northern Europeans are carrier for cystic fibrosis. 1 in 8 African Americans are carrier for sickle cell disease. 1 in 54 men and women worldwide are carrier for Spinal Muscular Atrophy. 

If you are a Ashkenazi Jewish, French Canadian, or Cajun decent, we recommend you consider our expanded carrier screening panel. Please ask your doctor or reach out to us for more questions at support@unityscreen.com or 650-460-2551.

How is your test different from non-invasive prenatal tests for Down syndrome?

UNITY currently does not screen for aneuploidies such as Down syndrome. UNITY is an alternative carrier screening test. We perform carrier screening for CF, SMA, and hemoglobinopathies and provide single gene NIPT for a fetus at risk for disease.

How long does it take to get the result?

Most patients get the result within 10 business days since we receive the sample. Please talk to your provider for the test result.

I have more medical questions. Can I talk to the genetic counselor before taking the test?

Yes, we provide pre-test counseling for free. To schedule an appointment, please call at 650-460-2551 or email us at support@unityscreen.com
