The American Medical Association (AMA) Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes and Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes listed, are provided for informational purposes only. The codes reflect our interpretation of CPT/HCPCS coding requirements based upon AMA guidelines published annually. CPT/HCPCS codes are provided only as guidance to assist clients with billing. Baylor Genetics strongly recommends that clients confirm CPT/HCPCS codes with their Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) or other payer being billed, as requirements may differ. CPT coding is the sole responsibility of the billing party. Baylor Genetics assumes no responsibility for billing errors due to reliance on the CPT codes listed. Please direct any questions regarding CPT coding to the payer being billed.


Total BluePrint Panel
Test Information: The Total Blueprint Panel is a test comprised of approximately 4,800 known Mendelian disease causing genes. This test focuses on the regions of the genes that contain important sequences of DNA that serve as the blueprint for essential proteins important for proper body function. These regions of DNA are referred to as exons. It is known that most of the errors that occur in DNA sequences that then lead to genetic disorders are located in the exons. In contrast to other sequencing tests that analyze anywhere from one gene to hundreds of genes, yet could still miss the culprit gene, the Total Blueprint Panel will analyze all the exonic regions of the 4,800 or so genes at one time in order to identify the rare changes in an individual's DNA that are contributing to their medical concerns.
