John Hancock - Offering Access to GRAIL's Multi-Cancer Early Detrection Test to Vitality Customers
John Hancock is excited to announce a pilot program, offering eligible John Hancock Vitality customers access to Galleri® — a multi-cancer early detection test. Offering access to the Galleri test aligns with our goal of providing Vitality customers the latest technology to help them live longer, healthier, better lives. Read the announcement here.
John Hancock will be reaching out to eligible customers in the coming weeks. In the meantime, they have compiled answers to a few questions you may have about the pilot below.
What is the Galleri test? Galleri uses a simple blood draw to screen for more than 50 types of cancer, many of which are not commonly screened for today. It’s important to note that Galleri does not diagnose cancer but can lead to more targeted follow-up diagnostic testing.
Which of my clients are eligible for this offer? Clients who meet ALL the following criteria are eligible for this pilot:
- Age 50 or older
- John Hancock life insurance policy with Vitality PLUS issued between September 1, 2019 and March 31, 2022
- Completed their Vitality Health Review in the current program year
How will my eligible clients be made aware of the offer? If your client is eligible, we will reach out to them in the coming weeks with information about Galleri and details on how to request their test.
How much will my clients have to pay for the test? For eligible polices with coverage amounts of $500,000 or greater, 100% of the cost of the test will be subsidized. For policies with less than $500,000 in coverage, 50% of the cost of the test will be subsidized and the customer will pay $475.
Will John Hancock receive my clients’ test results? No. Individual test results will not be shared with John Hancock or John Hancock Vitality, and results will have no impact on inforce coverage.
What action is needed on my part? No action is needed on your part. We simply wanted to make sure you heard today’s news and are aware that we’ll be reaching out to eligible policyholders in the coming weeks. If you would like, we encourage you to use this as a positive touchpoint with your eligible clients, letting them know that they will be hearing from us soon.
