Cardiovascular Testing
A simple genetic test could help your doctor determine your risk.

What is Genetic Testing?

Genetic testing analyzes DNA to detect genetic variations.

Variations in your genes are responsible for differences in

everything from hair and eye color to predispositions to cancer. Genetic variations are normal. Genetic testing is the only way to

find your unique gene variations.


What is Cardio genetic testing and how can my doctor utilize it?

A CGx test will analyze your DNA to determine if you have a predisposition to a hereditary cancer. Your provider can act

on the results to optimize your healthcare plan.


What type of genetic testing does Phi Life Sciences do and what do the tests look for?  

Phi Life Sciences provides three CGx tests.

A 35-gene, Onco+BRCA test, a 40-gene CGx

test and a 138-gene CGx test. Our Onco+BRCA

and 40-gene CGx test cover basic, high risk

targets, while our 138-gene test is an extended

panel that covers 66% more hereditary cancer markers.


Will insurance pay for the test?

Medicare has covered the cost for people with

certain family history or personal history of cancer.

Private insurance companies may pay if your doctor

considers the test medically necessary. Most common

carriers cover the cost after insurance has been authorized

or verified. You may ask your insurance company or Phi Life

Sciences can check to see if you are covered. 

How can Cardio Genetic testing help me?

Cardio Genetic testing (CGx) helps you and your doctor find

inherited genetic variations associated with an increased

risk for developing certain cancers. With knowledge of

genetic variations, your provider can personalize your

healthcare plan based on your CGx results. Phi Life Sciences

offers a needs-based Financial Assistance Program for patients

with financial hardship.
