Paying for the Oncotype DX Test
In the United States
All major insurance carriers cover the Oncotype DX test for eligible patients with early-stage invasive breast cancer, including Medicare, Aetna, CIGNA, United Healthcare, Kaiser Permanente, Anthem/WellPoint, Humana, Blue Cross Federal, and many others. Medicare has established coverage for the Oncotype DX test for patients with DCIS (non-invasive) breast cancer, although coverage outside of Medicare will vary by insurance plan.
In the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan Ontario Quebec and Newfoundland, the test is publicly reimbursed on a case-by-case basis, meaning that doctors must seek prior approval for reimbursement before sending tissue to Genomic Health.
