Is cancer in your genes? New DNA screening test could save your life.

This year, nearly 1.7 million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer.

Most find out through tests involving needles, biopsies and pathology, but few people know that Medicare now covers new genetic cancer screening at little or no out-of-pocket cost.

This genetic screening allows your DNA to be analyzed to help determine your cancer risk and match you with your best options for preventing and treating illness.

Since the program was launched, over 10,000 people have claimed their test kits through The Health Awareness Project, a brand owned and operated by AmeriHealth, a CLIA-certified laboratory and leading provider of genetic cancer screening in the U.S.
