Trends in BRCA test utilization in an integrated health system, 2005-2015.
The authors reported 10-year trends in BRCA testing in an integrated health-care system with long-standing access to genetic services. They found that many eligible women did not receive BRCA testing despite having insurance coverage and access to specialty genetic services, thus underscoring challenges to primary and secondary hereditary cancer prevention.
