Broad insurance coverage

Myriad testing is in-network with most commercial insurance plans, meaning you can make the most of your insurance benefits.

Your cost for hereditary cancer testing depends on several factors, including your insurance plan, your remaining deductible and your eligibility for financial assistance. Most patients pay $0 out-of-pocket for MyRisk.1

Clear cost estimates

It’s important to understand your cost – if any – and your options prior to running your MyRisk test. This helps ensure you don’t receive an unexpected bill. A few business days after Myriad receives your MyRisk sample from your healthcare provider, we’ll contact you via email and/or text to let you know your personalized cost estimate is ready. 

Your estimate will consider

  • your individual insurance plan
  • how much of your deductible you’ve paid so far
  • any copays or coinsurance
  • your current financial circumstances
