Common Questions and Concerns

Will genetic testing be covered by my insurance?

Providing the criteria are met, insurance coverage is excellent with the majority of patitents covered and paying a coinsurance of less than 10%. Myriad Genetics performs the authorization and will not run a test until it is approved. Patients can pay out of pocket if the proper criteria are not met or coverage is denied.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss if you’re a candidate for genetic testing please call our office at 703-763-4355.
