Discrepancies Between Payer Coverage and Consensus Guidelines for Personalizing Hereditary Cancer Risk 

  • Comparison of HBOC genetic testing policies from three US insurers to NCCN v2.2019 medical management guidelines available for 16 genes identified that among insurers A, B, and C, 6(37.5%), 8(50.0%) and 15(93.8%) of the genes were covered, respectively.
  • On a patient level, limiting genetic testing to payer coverage resulted in unidentified mutations and missed opportunities to personalize cancer risk management in accordance with expert consensus.
  • This data supports the expansion of insurer genetic testing policies to include MGPT for patients at high-risk of HBOC.
