Hi, my OB just asked if I want to do Cystic Fibrosis test. However, she told me that 90% insurance company doesn't cover the cost.

What is your opinion about the test? Is it a must? How much is the cost?

Thanks. rose

I just called my insurance company, and they need the medical code of CF test before they can give me any detailed coverage information frustrated Guess I have to call my OB or Labcorp tommorrow to get the code. Mad Why they have to make everything so hard for us! confused

Get the procedure code for CF screening test, it is 83898. And called my insurance company again, this time the representative answered immediately that it is covered by the insurance without even asking about the procedure code. Really doubt if her answer is reliable or not.

Anyway, since Asian people have low risk of CF, I am going to skip this test.
