Very Brief Blog: Concert Genetics' Free Website Search of Labs and Charges

This month, I was working on a project to help stakeholders comment on the bizarrely low CMS gapfill price for clinical whole genome sequencing (CPT 81425, CMS proposal $349 [!]). 

One helpful resource was the Concert Genetics open public database of labs, test names, and often charges [email registration required.]. 

Go to and in the upper right see "Search Genetic Tests."   For first time users, you'll be guided to open-access registration.   A few screen shots below.  Typical charges for whole genome sequencing are circa $7500.
