  • How much does screening cost?
    Myriad Women’s Health has partnered with many health plans to provide patients affordable access to our genetic screenings. Each patient is provided an individualized price estimate via email and/ or text message within 48 hours of receipt of a completed order. Your out of pocket cost will be based on your provided medical information and insurance plan coverage. Myriad Women’s Health is dedicated to providing accessible testing. If cost is a concern, we offer financial options in our Myriad Access Program, including financial assistance and interest-free payment plans.
  • My insurance company informed me that I need prior authorization, what does this mean?
    Prior authorization may be required by your insurance company to confirm medical necessity for screening. Our specialized team will submit prior authorization upon receiving your order as required by your insurance company. No action is required by the patient.

  • Why is my price estimate different than my partner’s estimate?

  • My price estimate informed me I qualified for financial assistance, is further action required?
    No further action is required if you qualified for financial assistance. Patients who meet criteria for reduced cost screening are enrolled into our financial assistance program. Patients can also submit an application manually and receive a determination instantly here. More information about our Myriad Access Program can be found here. 
  • Why do people with insurance have different out-of-pocket costs for the same screening?
    Many individual factors are involved in healthcare costs and pricing. For those with insurance, your actual out-of-pocket cost will depend on: 
    • The fraction of the total cost that your insurance covers, which varies by plan 
    • The amount you have already paid for healthcare expenses this year 
    • If your insurance provider is in-network or out-of-network with Myriad Women's Health (Tax ID: 74-3238060) 
    • Meeting medical criteria to have insurance cover genetic screens 
    If cost is a concern, we offer financial options in our Myriad Access Program, such as financial assistance and interest-free payment plans.  
  • When should I expect to receive an invoice from Myriad Women’s Health for any possible out of pocket costs?
    Self-pay patients will receive their invoice within 30 days after results are released. Patients who use insurance will receive their invoice after their claim is closed, typically 45-60 days after results are released. 
  • What is an ICD-10 (diagnosis) code?
    The International Classification of Disease tenth revision (ICD-10) is a system of coding created by the World Health Organization that notes various medical records including diseases, symptoms, abnormal findings and external causes of injury. All U.S. healthcare providers are required to use this coding system. On October 1st, 2015, the healthcare industry  transitioned from ICD-9 to ICD-10. The new standard provides clearer explanation across the healthcare industry in regards to patient diagnosis. ICD-10's specificity increases the available codes to include over 68,000 codes to choose from. 
  • Can I use my Health Reimbursement Account (HRA), Health Savings Account (HSA), or Flex Spending Account (FSA) funds to pay for a screen from Myriad Women’s Health?
    Services from Myriad Women's Health fall under the category of laboratory fees and are eligible medical expenses for HRAs, HSAs, and FSAs. You may use your HRA, HSA or FSA card as a form of payment with a valid credit line. 
  • Does Myriad Women’s Health offer financial assistance?
    Myriad Women's Health works hard to make our screens as accessible as possible. If cost is a concern, once an order is submitted by your provider you can apply for financial assistance here. You will receive a follow up email confirming qualification if approved.  Please note each order requires a separate application to be submitted, therefore if your provider is ordering more than one screen, you'll need to submit multiple applications.   If cost is still a concern, we offer additional financial options in our Myriad Access Program, such as interest-free payment plans. 
  • What is “maximum out of pocket?”
    This is a yearly limit that a person has to pay for covered services according to her health plan. The following count toward this maximum out-of-pocket amount:  
    • Deductibles  
    • Copayments  
    • Coinsurance  
    After you spend this amount on deductibles, copayments, and coinsurance, your health plan pays 100% of the cost of covered benefits. This limit does not apply to services that are not covered by the plan.  More questions about insurance terminology? Please review the resources below:
