Financial Assistance Programs
Myriad Financial Assistance Program
Beginning July 22, 2013, Myriad will offer financial assistance to reduce qualified underinsured patients’ out-of-pocket cost to no more than $375. To be eligible, patients must have private insurance, meet their insurance’s coverage criteria for testing, and meet low income requirements (household incomes up to 200 percent of the Federal poverty level). This expansion of Myriad’s financial assistance program to underinsured patients complements the free testing Myriad currently offers for low income uninsured patients.
Myriad offers testing at no charge to uninsured patients that meet specific financial and medical criteria. Patients with insurance that meet similar financial and medical criteria may be eligible for financial assistance through Myriad. Due to regulatory limitations, patients who are recipients of government funded programs (ie, Medicaid, Medicare) are not eligible to apply for MFAP.
Qualification requirements and the submission instructions are provided below:

With the Myriad Promise, we partner to ensure your satisfaction.
At Myriad, we believe every patient should have access to the highest quality genetic testing because we know how useful it is in helping healthcare providers deliver the best medical care.
When one of our tests is ordered for you, we will work with your insurance provider to help you get the appropriate coverage allowed by your plan.
If your out of pocket expense will exceed $375, we will call you before processing your test to discuss payment plan options that are available to you.
We won’t call if your bill will be $375 or less, but if you have concerns about your bill, you can contact us at the 800 number that appears on your bill and we guarantee that we will work with you to come up with an option that’s right for you.
We are committed to make sure that test results are accurate, timely, and financially accessible to everyone.
What does this mean for you?
- When your doctor feels you should have genetic testing to help you get the best possible care, you can proceed right away, feeling confident that the costs will be manageable.
- No surprises. If your bill will be more than $375, we’ll call. You can work with us to come up with a payment plan that meets your needs.
