Frequently asked questions

  • How much will this cost?

    Because we work with most major insurance companies, 9 out of 10 patients pay zero dollars. However, for those paying out of pocket, we provide cost estimates up front, so you know your costs before you commit. Financial assistance is also available to those who qualify.
    For further cost questions, our Financial Access Team is ready to help at 1-833-398-2137.

  • How can I find a healthcare provider?

    If you’re in need of a healthcare provider to help submit your test sample, consider our Virtual care services which connect you to a genetic counselor to guide you through every step of the process.

    Alternatively, visit our Find a Provider Directory, where you can search for healthcare providers in your area who have ordered testing from Myriad over the last six months.

  • Why does a doctor need to order this for me?

    Unlike recreational genetic tests, MyRisk is a medical grade test that requires a healthcare provider’s signature to initiate testing. If you don’t have a healthcare provider, consider our Virtual care services which connect you to a genetic counselor who will help you submit your test sample.

  • What are the potential outcomes of the test and their impact on me?

    Every results report is unique to the individual and provides an individualized risk estimate for all. Moreover, MyRisk produces personalized care plans that providers can use to help patients manage their risk. The plans can recommend a wide range of proactive options from risk reduction strategies to additional screenings.

  • Can the MyRisk test determine if I have cancer?

    MyRisk does not diagnose cancer. It is a test to evaluate your hereditary risk of developing 11 types of cancer. Myriad representatives are unable to provide medical advice or help diagnose any symptoms and recommend consulting with your healthcare provider.

  • When will I receive my results?

    Average turnaround time is seven to 14 days.
