Many patients not willing to pay for genetic testing
CHICAGO—A study presented at the ASCO Annual Meeting has found that many people with hereditary cancer risk are only willing to have genetic testing performed if their insurance covers the cost.
Because genetic testing can be very expensive, Dr Matro recommends that researchers learn more about which patients are most at risk.
These findings were presented at the 2012 ASCO Annual Meeting as abstract 1544.
