FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Check out these helpful common questions and answers.




What is genetic testing?
Genetic testing looks for specific inherited changes or mutations in a person's chromosomes, genes, or proteins. Inherited mutations increase a person's risk of developing cancer through a variety of mechanisms, depending on the gene.

How do I know if I am covered?
To begin the process, either make an appointment with your doctor or simply fill out the short form at the top of this page and a counselor will contact you to assess your coverage and get the testing process in motion.

Who should consider testing?
Experts recommend that genetic testing be considered by people with a personal or family history that suggests an inherited cancer risk. For example, a close relative has or had a certain type of cancer or disease. By filling out this questionnaire, you can get started.


Is genetic testing complicated?
No. It is easy. The new, innovative genetic test consists of a simple swab inside the cheek that is sent to a laboratory for results within a matter of weeks. Just fill out this simple form and a qualified person will call you and assess your insurance coverage. If you meet the criteria, a phlebotomist can be sent to your home to take the swab and send it to the laboratory for testing.

Does a person who inherits a pre-disposing mutation always get cancer?
No. Even if a cancer pre-disposing mutation is present in a family, it does not necessarily mean that everyone who inherits the mutation will develop cancer. Several factors, including pattern of inheritance, diet and exposure to certain elements, can influence and determine a person's true susceptibility to get cancer.

If I already know my family has history of cancer why get tested?
Testing for a hereditary cancer risk helps you and your healthcare professional make the best choices for preventative care. Knowing you family history is important, but testing can give you a more accurate picture of your risk. To begin the process, simply fill out this form and a counselor will contact you to assess coverage and get the testing started.


What types of cancers are considered to be genetic?
In recent years, scientists have discovered a number of mutations that can contribute to a person’s risk of developing certain cancers, including breast, uterine, ovarian, colon and prostate cancer as well as some other, less common types. To begin the process, simply fill out this form and a counselor will contact you to assess coverage and get the testing started.

Why would someone want to learn about whether he or she has a higher risk for certain types of cancers?
If a person knows they have a higher risk of cancer, this helps in several ways: (1) a person could change their lifestyle to prevent the disease, and (2) a person could be more diligent in testing and going to the doctor since early detection and treatment is better than dealing with a disease which is at a further, developed stage.

How long does it take to get the results of genetic testing?
Commercial laboratories generally take between three and six weeks to give you your results. Then you take the results to your primary physician or healthcare professional for a report on their findings. To begin the process, simply fill out this form and a counselor will contact you to assess coverage and get the testing started.


Does a positive result mean that I already have cancer or that I am definitely getting it?
No. Genetic testing does not tell you if you currently have cancer. Your test results only alert you that you have an inherited "risk" of developing cancer.

Is genetic testing recommended for everyone?
While testing is the most accurate way to determine the risk of hereditary cancer, only people who have cancer in their family or a personal history of the disease need to be tested.

If I already have cancer, why should I get tested?
Testing for a hereditary cancer helps you understand your risk for developing a second primary cancer. Simply fill out this form and a counselor will get the testing started.


Why do insurance companies cover genetic testing?
Through the Affordable Care Act, most health insurance companies will cover the cost for genetic counseling and testing for people who meet the specified criteria as genetic testing is now classified as preventative care, requiring no out-of-pocket cost for those who are deemed eligible. However, some plans still don't recognize that requirement yet.

What is pharmacogenomic (drug-gene) testing?
Pharmacogenomics is the study of how genes affect a person's response to drugs. Testing aims to drastically reduce the number of adverse drug reactions that happen every single day. Many insurance companies cover this test also. To begin the process, simply fill out this form and a counselor will contact you to assess your coverage.

Is testing for the risk of adverse reactions to drug necessary?
Recent studies demonstrated that over 90% of patients possess clinically actionable genetic variants that affect their drug exposure. Over 770k people are injured or die each year in hospitals from adverse drug events. A single swab test could avoid major problems and financial liabilities for hospitals and insurance companies.


Can testing affect my health coverage or employment?
No. The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act keeps insurance companies and employers from discriminating based on information found in genetic screenings. The Affordable Care Act explicitly protects against discrimination not only of pre-existing conditions, but of those found through genetic testing.

What are panel tests or respiratory pathogen testing?
Panel tests offer a solution that is both rapid and accurate and eliminates the guesswork associated with diagnosing and treating upper respiratory infections, such as the flu. To begin the process, simply fill out this form and a medical counselor will contact you to assess your coverage and get the testing process in motion.

Are separate tests required to assess the risks for hereditary cancer, adverse drug reactions and upper respiratory susceptibility?
No, there is now one test that covers all three elements, and it is merely a swab sample taken from inside the cheek. To begin the process, simply fill out this form and a counselor will contact you to assess your coverage.

Preventive screening truly saved my life. Had I not spent 5 minutes of my time to take preventative measures, who knows where I'd be today.

The federal healthcare program will now cover the costs of cancer gene tests that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. If you or a family member has been diagnosed with Cancer, or there are other signs which suggest an inherited cancer risk condition, genetic screening may be fully covered by the new federal healthcare program. A phlebotomist will take a quick at-home swab to send to the lab. The patient will be contacted by their doctor once the results are in.
