Cost & Billing Information

Cost Estimate – Know the price before you place an order

In order to facilitate billing and payment, we ask that the requesting clinician obtain a cost estimate before placing an order for laboratory services.

The cost estimate is a price guarantee for the service(s) requested and is valid for a specified period. All prices are quoted in euros (EUR) and are exclusive of logistics and insurance costs, license fees, customs duties, value added tax (VAT) or other similar taxes.

Based on this estimate, the service(s) can be requested and will be billed accordingly.

Note: Clinicians who currently have a contractual price agreement with MGZ are not required to obtain a cost estimate. For tests or services not included in the agreement, a cost estimate is required.

How to Request a Cost Estimate

Clinicians

Clinicians can obtain a current cost estimate for laboratory services in the following ways:

  • MGZ website portal
    • Send your price request for the testing services of interest via MGZ’s Inquiry/Order portal.
    • You will receive a cost estimate through the online portal with an online ordering option, when available.
  • Email
    • Send your price request for the testing services of interest by using our convenient contact form.
    • You will receive a cost estimate by email that should be printed and included in the package with the sample(s) and all other required documents, when ready for shipping. Please see our shipping instructions for more details.

*Please note: If a cost estimate has not been obtained, we reserve the right to place the genetic testing on hold. We will contact you via email, informing you of the costs and requesting you to reply stating your agreement to the costs or your cancellation of the test request.
