Most insurance carriers cover genetic testing services for hereditary cancer. In fact, although each situation is unique, the average patient pays a coinsurance of less than $295. Myriad assists in obtaining the best possible reimbursement for each of the genetic tests we offer. Our goal is to ensure that your patients receive the appropriate coverage from their plan. There are several payment options available:
Option 1 – Insurance BillingIf the Insurance Billing option is selected on the Test Request Form, Myriad will verify coverage and determine the patient’s financial responsibility. Myriad offers financial assistance to reduce out-of-pocket costs for qualified underinsured patients in the U.S. to no more than $295. Examples of patients who are considered underinsured include:
- Those with a high deductible or out-of-pocket expenses
Option 2 – Patient PaymentThe patient has an option to self-pay for testing. Patients may provide credit card information on the Test Request Form, provide a check or money order payable to Myriad Genetic Laboratories, Inc. for testing services. Myriad also offers interest free payment plans. Please have the patient call Myriad Customer Service at 800-469-7423 for payment information.
Option 3 – Other Billing (Bill Institution/Research/MGA)
Bill Institution:The Bill Institution option should be selected if the facility would like to be billed for the test charges. Please provide your Bill Institution account number on the test request form. If you do not have a Bill Institution account number, please submit billing information with specimen including: name of institution, responsible party name, billing address, phone and fax.
Research:The research project code should be specified on the Test Request Form only if the facility has a current research project with Myriad Genetic Laboratories.
Myriad Genetics Authorization (MGA):The MGA option should be marked if Myriad has authorized research testing for this particular patient. Please make sure that MGA number is provided on the test request form, and the relationship to the known mutation carrier is specified. Should the patient have any questions regarding billing questions after the test is complete, the patient is encouraged to contact our Billing Department at 800-725-2722.
