Title: Curative Insurance Expands Member Benefits with Galleri Test for Multi-Cancer Early Detection

Curative Insurance Company has partnered with GRAIL, LLC to offer eligible health insurance plan members access to the Galleri test for multi-cancer early detection (MCED). This collaboration represents a significant advancement in proactive healthcare, providing members over the age of 50 and those with cancer risk factors access to the Galleri test with a $0 copay and $0 deductible.

The Galleri test, administered through a simple blood draw, complements existing single-cancer screenings by identifying DNA released by cancer cells. It targets cancers without established screenings, such as pancreatic, esophageal, ovarian, and liver cancers. Studies indicate a 75% sensitivity for detecting cancers responsible for two-thirds of cancer-related deaths, rising to 80% for the most severe cases. Galleri also demonstrates an 88% accuracy in pinpointing the origin of the cancer, providing valuable information for further exploration.

Fred Turner, CEO and Co-founder of Curative, highlighted the importance of proactive screening, stating, “Preventive care is at the core of our health insurance plan, and the Galleri test may allow qualified members to screen for potential cancer early, before any symptoms appear when it may be more easily treated and potentially curable.”

Bob Ragusa, CEO at GRAIL, praised Curative's commitment to preventative care and emphasized the significance of addressing cancers without recommended screenings.

Curative's $0 copay, $0 deductible plan offers comprehensive coverage, including wellness, preventive care, behavioral health services, primary and specialty care, office and hospital visits, and prescription drugs. Accessible through a high-quality PPO network, the plan is available to employers in Texas and Florida with 50 or more eligible employees nationwide, providing broad national network coverage and access to almost 1 million providers nationwide. This strategic move reaffirms Curative's commitment to delivering high-quality healthcare solutions prioritizing the well-being of its members.
