    Ask a patent lawyer

    From MYGN's website:

    Myriad Financial Assistance Program

    Myriad is able to offer testing at no charge to uninsured patients that meet specific financial and medical criteria. Due to regulatory limitations, patients who are recipients of governmentfunded programs (ie, Medicaid, Medicare) or those that have any third-party insurance are not eligible to apply.

    Qualification requirements and the submission instructions are provided below:

    Financial Criteria (PDF)*

    "Greedy doctor," huh? Check out the court filings and then tell me a significant number of patients cannot get access to the tests. MYGN makes money off its tests and that's why I own its stock. But to argue the patents prevent access to tests is simple-minded and wrong.
