The Kentucky State Senate will soon be voting on SB146, to establish the licensure of genetic counselors in Kentucky.
SB 146 would do the following:
- PROTECT the public by ensuring that those presenting themselves as a “genetic counselor” have the training and certification to do so.
- ALLOW for genetic counselors in Kentucky to become credentialed independently with insurance companies and to bill for services using the existing genetic counseling CPT code (96040).
- EXPAND access to genetic counseling services and increase the number of genetic counselors in Kentucky
