Does Health Insurance Cover Oncotype DX Breast Cancer Test?

>>>DR. STEVEN SHAK: I wish the answer to
this question today was black and white. We’re almost black and white but not there yet.
With regard to node negative breast cancer, again the most common type of breast cancer,
the Oncotype DX breast cancer test is carried by Medicare and all the major payers. For cases where there is no positive disease,
there is coverage in many cases and we are working actively to make sure that we obtain
coverage or a program that will allow you to get the information you need. Hi, I am Dr. Jay Harness and I want to share
with you important information that I believe that every newly diagnosed patient with breast
cancer needs to know. Susan Denver: I am a breast cancer survivor. Katherine Stockton: I am a breast cancer survivor. Coree: I am a breast cancer survivor. Susan Denver: And I want every woman to know… Katherine Stockton: …about personalized
breast cancer treatment… Susan Denver: …and the Genomic Test. Coree: A test that helps guide a woman and
her doctor… Katherine Stockton: …to the best treatment
options for her. Susan Denver: Pass it on!
