About Bradford C. Powell, MD, PhD, FACMG

Genetic information has great potential to guide medical care. Using this information effectively requires identifying when it is appropriate to have genetic testing, what the appropriate test is, and clearly communicating the implications of this testing. I chose clinical genetics as a field to help use this exciting technology to help people understand when this information might be important to their health.

UNC Health contracts with most health insurance companies including, but not limited to, the ones listed here. While we do our best to keep this list up-to-date, it often changes. Professional fees charged by care providers and organizations who are not employed, owned or managed by UNC Health may not be included under the same insurance contracts and may bill separately. Before scheduling your appointment, please contact the organization or care provider in charge of delivering these services as they may be able to help you identify who will be providing these services. Your insurance company can help to determine which specific services, locations and providers are covered by your plan as well as provide you with information regarding co-payments, deductibles or any additional charges that may be your responsibility. UNC Health makes no representation or guarantee of benefits or coverage. Services not covered by your insurance company will be your responsibility.
