Under Medicare’s guidelines, BRCA1 and BRCA2 genetic testing is covered for people with:

  1. A personal history of breast cancer, with one or more of the following:

    • personal history of epithelial ovarian/fallopian tube/primary peritoneal cancer
    • of a certain ethnicity associated with higher mutation frequency, (eg, founder populations of Ashkenazi Jewish, Icelandic, Swedish, Hungarian or other) no additional family history required

Medicare operates on a regional system in which Medicare Area Contractors (MACs) manage the provision of health services for a specific jurisdiction. In the spring of 2015, four MACs expanded their coverage to better align their services with National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines in a number of important areas, including:

  • Expanding coverage of genetic testing for individuals who have or had cancer consistent with hereditary cancer syndromes, including men diagnosed with prostate cancer and men and women diagnosed with pancreatic cancer,
  • Coverage of multigene testing panels if more than one mutation may be indicated, and
  • Clarification of the BRCA testing policy for use of the targeted therapyLynparza (olaparib).

It is important to note that these policy changes apply only to states covered by the four MACs:
Arkansas, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Kentucky, Montana, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia and Wyoming

Medicare does not currently cover the cost of genetic testing in individuals who do not have a personal history of cancer.

No retirement income at 65, plan early and review yearly

retirement goals fears plan

I met two people this year who had made millions in the past 20 yrs and they are broke now with no retirement income. They prioritize mansions and others before they have ensured their most important asset, their life with sufficient retirement income, money during health threats/long term care, investments with no market risks and sufficient life insurance to leave an estate to the next generation.

You only need to save 10-20% of your net income for 20 yrs and you will have a retirement income for life of between $70k to $300k per year until age 120.

Let me help you with retirement that is tax free, no income limit, returns up to 13%, with living benefits of up to $1.5M when terminal illness (first or last stage of cancer) or disability occurs, with five indexing strategies keeping your gains and principal intact.
