GoNavigate™ is not covered by Medicare. People with private health insurance are advised to check with their insurance company regarding cover.
A health advisor will welcome you and talk you through the GoNavigate™ program in detail.
Once you have provided a blood sample, you will spend time with a doctor and exercise physiologist before undergoing a physical examination and pathology testing. Your doctor will then discuss your test results and your completed medical questionnaire with you. They will answer your questions and work with you to develop a personalised health report and action plan.
The health assessment will take between 2 to 3 hours.
You will meet a genetic health professional to discuss any questions you may have about genomic testing. At this time, you can provide consent to continue with GoNavigate™.
In 8-12 weeks, you will meet the genetic health professional again to learn about your genomic testing and pharmacogenomics results. At this time, you will also be provided with a copy of all your test results.
Upon confirmation of your booking we will send you a link to an online questionnaire, which needs to be completed at least 2 days prior to your assessment. This will include questions about your personal family and medical history. It should take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
Eating and drinking before a blood test can affect some of the blood results.
Our staff will inform you of when you need to stop eating when you make your appointment.
Yes, to a degree it will be. Depending on the information gathered through the questionnaire, pathology testing and doctor’s consultation we will provide you with tailored health advice and follow up.
Yes. For your health assessment, you can choose male or female doctors according to your personal preference. Please advise our staff of your preference when making your booking.
GoNavigate™ assesses your genetic risk of developing 31 cancers, 13 cardiac conditions and 8 other inherited conditions. At this stage, we are only reporting genetic variants associated with conditions that can be treated, managed, monitored or prevented.
As medical and scientific knowledge increases, the test will be expanded to include additional conditions. Your genomic information can be reanalysed in the future upon request from your doctor (additional fees may apply).
Under current Australian law, your private health insurance will not be affected by your decision to have genomic testing, or by any result of genomic testing. However, genomic testing may have implications for your ability to obtain risk-rated insurance policies, including life insurance, disability insurance and income protection insurance.
More information on life insurance products and genetic testing can be found at www.genetics.edu.au (Fact sheet 20)
Patients outside of Australia should obtain advice about the implications of genomic testing for insurance in their home country.
You’ll receive the results of your physical examination and blood tests on the day, and the doctor will discuss these with you during your consultation. You will receive a detailed report of your health assessment results one week after your visit.
Your report will include:
You will receive your genomic and pharmacogenomics test results 8 to 12 weeks after we receive your blood sample and paperwork.
In the case something significant is found, we will explain the results in detail and refer you to your own general practitioner or an appropriate specialist for further investigation.
In accordance with quality assurance and Australian accreditation requirements, we will continue to securely store your genomic data. We protect your genomic data as confidential health information. We work only with high security data management providers. Your genomic information is stored for the period required by law and generally accepted pathology practice.
