What is the difference between an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) and a bill?

Your insurance carrier will process our claim and then send you an Explanation of Bene ts (EOB)—THIS IS NOT A BILL. Most patients do not receive a bill, and you will NOT be responsible for any balance unless you receive a bill directly from Myriad, even if you receive a denial letter from your insurance company. If you have concerns about your EOB please contact Myriad at (844) 697-4239 or billing@myriad.com

What if I need help with my bill?

If you encounter ANY financial hardship associated with your genetic test, Myriad will work with you toward your complete satisfaction. Myriad provides payment plans without interest, where you can pay as little as $15/month if you have a bill.

^ For patients with a qualifying family history under all non-grandfathered insurance plans

† Patients who are recipients of U.S. government-funded programs such as Medicaid, Medicare, Medicare-Advantage and Tricare may not be eligible.

‡ Uninsured and insured patients meeting specific financial and medical criteria may qualify to receive testing at no charge.
