Depending on the reason a CA-125 test is requested, the patient’s insurance company may cover the cost of the procedure. Thus, when it is used in observing the evolution of preexistent ovarian cancer and its response to treatment, the majority of companies will cover the cost.
In certain cases, insurance coverage may also be provided if the woman has a particularly high risk of developing the disease due to hereditary factors. However, the cost of the CA-125 test is generally not covered by insurance companies when it is intended to be used as a screening procedure.
We wanted a resource where people who are looking for better help can find it, because one of the issues that I have found is that the diagnosis takes a little bit, some people don’t know if they are diagnosed or not. This is something that it is important enough, that is why I wanted to put the information together.
