In the wake of the Supreme Court's decision that the BRCA genes cannot be patented, Myriad Genetics' previous monopoly on the test will cease, and more women will be seeking testing. All women who have a risk of carrying a BRCA gene mutation have a right to testing covered by insurance. SIGN TODAY!
Goal: 60,000 Progress: 40,058
Sponsored by: The Breast Cancer Site

A woman who has inherited a harmful mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2 is about five times more likely to develop breast cancer than a woman who does not have such a mutation. A positive genetic mutation test result can bring relief from uncertainty and allow women to make informed decisions about their future, including taking steps to reduce their cancer risk.

Insurance companies should not have the right to decide who gets funded for testing. Take action today — urge Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services Sylvia Burwell to adopt legislation requiring insurance companies to cover genetic counseling and testing for the BRAC1 and BRAC2 mutations. Sign the petition below and tell a friend!

Dear Secretary Sylvia Burwell,

I urge you to adopt legislation requiring all insurance companies to provide coverage for BRCA gene testing upon recommendation from a medical professional. Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women and the second leading cause of cancer death, and unfortunately most of us know at least one mother, sister, or friend who has been touched by this disease.

A woman who has inherited a harmful mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2 is about five times more likely to develop breast cancer than a woman who does not have such a mutation, and families have the right to know about their own genetic risks. Medical experts, not insurance companies, should decide who is eligible for genetic testing. Your support is crucial to make these powerful prevention tools accessible to those who are at risk.

Sep 21, 2014 Jessica Wuerth Currently, I cannot get this test because my mother was 48 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, so we don't 'match the criteria' for people who are at high risk. I and my two sisters are concerned for our future health because we are all high risk.

Sep 21, 2014 Roberta Wuerth I was refused testing because I was over 45 with no family history (I was 48 when diagnosed). I have 3 daughters and have been told they will be denied because I was not tested. Knowledge is power against this disease.
Sep 21, 2014 Gail Erickson
Sep 21, 2014 Victoria Woods Time for insurance companies to realize early detection is key and will save them money in the long run. Coverage of the BRCA test is crucial.
Sep 21, 2014 (Name not displayed) Every woman should have this test available to them and be covered by their insurance!
