Announcing the Access to Preventative Care Survey
Recent increases in the use of genetic testing in the cancer realm have helped many individuals to understand whether they have a heightened risk
of developing the disease in the future. This knowledge helps individuals to create a plan for preventative care to decrease their risk of developing
cancer. However, the goals and promises of genetic testing will not be met if individuals cannot gain access to preventative services after learning
of a heightened risk. The laws governing genetic information are recent and are often attempting to catch up to rapidly changing science.

For this reason, the Cancer Legal Resource Center (CLRC) and Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered (FORCE) are conducting a survey about
individuals’ experiences with insurance coverage of preventative services, specifically for individuals with a genetic predisposition for cancer. The
goal of the survey is to find any gaps in the system that make it difficult for individuals with a genetic predisposition for cancer to gain access to
preventative care. Based on the results, we plan to create strategies for changes to the legal landscape to ensure the best access to preventative
care for individuals.

This survey is intended to gather information about access to preventative services given a genetic predisposition to, or family history of, cancer. It
is not seeking information about insurance coverage of treatment after a cancer diagnosis. We would like to hear about your experience with
insurance coverage, including private insurance, employer-sponsored health plans, Medicare, and Medicaid in the preventative care context. We
are interested in learning about your experience in order to ensure that individuals with a genetic predisposition for cancer receive the best possible
care. To complete the survey, please visit: www.surveymonkey.com/s/AccesstoPreventativeCare
