Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Insurance Coverage for Genetic Counseling & Screening

Insurance coverage for genetic testing varies significantly by insurer. You should contact your insurance company directly to determine whether they cover genetic testing as part of your plan. When you contact your insurance company, you should have the following information:

  • Name of the test
  • CPT codes: These codes, which can be obtained from the laboratory that performs that test, tell the insurer what lab work will be done and how much their policy will pay for it.
  • ICD-10 codes: These codes specify a medical diagnosis. Your doctor will need to provide these codes. If a letter of medical necessity is required, ICD-10 codes can be included in the letter.
  • Letter of medical necessity: Some insurance companies may ask for a letter from your doctor that confirms why this testing is medically important. You can contact your insurance company to determine if that is the case for you.
