Did you know that one of the few helpful benefits of Obamacare is that Hereditary Cancer or BRCA Testing Screening is now almost always covered 100% by your insurance, if you meet a few simple criteria? Take this quiz, print out the results and if you meet the criteria come visit Tara Kraf, our Womens Health Nurse practitioner and she will help you collect your entire family history to ensure this previously expensive test is completely covered by your insurance. The more detailed cancer history, with dates of diagnosis, that you bring to your visit the higher the likely of 100% reimbursement.
Myriad Genetics which is the original company to develop BRCA testing, they will draw your blood in the office then verify your exact benefits before running the test. This is a win-win situation. In addition, Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Syndrome (HBOC) is linked strongly to colon cancer (Lynch Syndrome).
I recently detected a patient with only a family history of ovarian cancer who now has a gene for Familial Adenomatous Polyposis which results in a 99% chance of Colon Cancer at an extremely young age. This finding will save this women’s life as proactive steps will be taken.
You owe it to yourself and family too get this simple blood test. Schedule your appointment ASAP.
