Privacy A physician or individual to whom a physician has delegated authority must obtain informed written consent to order a pre-symptomatic or predictive genetic test. Required contents of the informed consent form are specified, and the department of community health with others must develop a model consent form, which, if used, bars the test subject from bringing any civil action for damages based on failure to obtain consent. The public health department may investigate activities thought to be in violation of the law and report its findings by to the appropriate disciplinary subcommittee.
