 • $54 is the average patient out-of-pocket cost
 • Under the Affordable Care Act, BRCA testing is considered a preventive service with $0 patient out-of-pocket cost for women not currently being treated for breast or ovarian cancer^

What if my patient has a high deductible plan or co-insurance?
Patients with a high deductible or co-insurance may qualify for the Myriad Financial Assistance Program (MFAP) for a reduced out-of-pocket cost of no more than $100.†
