Government Agencies

Orchid PRO-DNA has been providing DNA parentage testing services to government agencies since 1990 on a case-by-case basis and on a contractual basis.

Who is Eligible for Government Rates?

In most situations, government agencies will be eligible for a discounted rate, which will apply to the case regardless of whether the agency is paying for the full cost of the case. The discounted rate will also apply if the government agency is only paying for 50% of the costs or even if the tested parties are paying for the test themselves. Please feel free to contact us at 1-800-563-4363 for more information.

How to Order a DNA Test

  • Download, complete and fax back our Government DNA Paternity Testing Application form 
  • If your agency is paying for all or a portion of the DNA test, include a written authorization on your letterhead indicating the amount your agency will be paying. We will invoice your agency upon receipt of the last sample for that case.
  • If the child is in the care of the government, please download, complete and fax back the Consent for a Child in Care form

Upon receipt of the above forms, an Orchid PRO-DNA customer service representative will contact the parties to schedule appointments for the collection of cheek swabs. The results will be mailed within 5 days of the receipt of the last sample in the case.
