@sears — That's an interesting question. After I did the Mayo Clinic GeneGuide testing I was asked if I wanted to give my permission for it's use by my doctors and I said absolutely. I think my Mayo primary care team can access the information if needed. Not sure I would want the health insurance companies seeing genetic data but that may just be me. Here's some information that may provide some understanding from a physicians perspective.
