Do you mean BRCA1 and BRCA2 testing?
Insurance, medicare, or medicaid (medi-cal) will only pay for genetic testing IF you are a breast cancer patient. In these situations, it can be used to determine the best treatment method.
If you don't have breast cancer, no insurance/medicare/medicaid(medi-cal) will not pay for genetic testing.
Insurance, medicare, and medicaid (medi-cal) will pay for mammograms with no cost to the patient.

if the doctor requests tests some are covered some are not, you need to find out first unless you want to pay some out of pocket
