Don’t Deny our Active Military Life-Saving Genetic Services

TRICARE, the insurance carrier of our active military and their families, ceased to cover more than 100 laboratory-based tests last year, including genetic tests for most hereditary cancer syndromes (excluding BRCA). This decision places TRICARE out-of-step with other government programs and commercial health insurance. Genetic Alliance is asking organizations to join in support to petition members of the House and Senate Armed Services Committees to restore coverage for these important, life-saving tests.
