Financial Assistance for Hereditary Cancer Testing


Over the past several months, incredible efforts have been made by healthcare professionals all over the world in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We understand that every situation is unique, and we don’t want cost to be a barrier when it comes to making a decision regarding hereditary cancer testing. The Myriad Promise is our commitment to provide patients with access to accurate and affordable genetic results. If you’re concerned about an inherited cancer risk, Myriad is here to provide access to accurate and affordable testing during this challenging time.


Financial Support

We recognize that many patients are struggling financially as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. At Myriad, we never want cost to be a barrier for you when it comes to receiving the genetic insights you need to make important healthcare decisions. Myriad has broad insurance coverage with 97% of private insurance companies having coverage for Myriad’s tests. In addition, 75% of patients receiving a hereditary cancer test will have no out-of-pocket costs.

For those patients who do have out-of-pocket costs, Myriad offers several financial assistance options that they may be eligible for

  • 60% of patients are eligible for Myriad’s Tiered Financial Assistance Program (MFAP) which offers reduced out-of-pocket costs, based on a patient’s family income, size (up to 4x federal poverty guidelines), and medical expenses.
  • Flexible payment plans allow interest-free payments for as little as $15/month
  • Financial hardship support– if a patient is experiencing financial hardship, such as being furloughed or laid-off by their employer due to COVID-19, we will work directly with the patient to find an option that works for them, based on their financial situation. That is our Myriad Promise.
