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.
