January 11, 2024

GRAIL’s GalleriWill Be Available to BeniComp Members, Ushering in a New Era of Proactive Health Management

Menlo Park, Calif., and Tampa, FL., January 11, 2024 – GRAIL, LLC, a healthcare company whose mission is to detect cancer early when it can be cured, and BeniComp, a customized health plan provider, today announced the availability of Galleri®, a multi-cancer early detection (MCED) screening test, to eligible patients initially through BeniComp Select members. This partnership underscores BeniComp’s commitment to proactive and preventive health management, enabling an even broader reach of their transformative health insurance products.

“Integrating GRAIL’s groundbreaking multi-cancer early detection technology into BeniComp’s plans is a step forward in our mission to impact the root cause of diseases and high costs,” said Steve Presser, President of  BeniComp. “Together, we are providing better access to care, and equipping our participants with proactive cancer screening tools.”

BeniComp’s program offers an innovative approach to controlling health costs by identifying risks at an early stage. The inclusion of GRAIL’s pioneering MCED screening test will now further enhance these preventive health measures by facilitating early detection of a shared cancer signal across more than 50 types of cancer from a single blood draw.

GRAIL’s Galleri® test is a first-of-its-kind MCED test introduced in 2021. Utilizing breakthroughs in next-generation sequencing and machine learning, the Galleri® test can detect a signal shared by many cancers, including those currently without recommended screenings. Adding Galleri® to guideline recommended cancer screenings may help to detect more cancers at an early stage and facilitate early diagnosis and treatment when necessary.

“Cancer remains the leading cause of death worldwide and this is because we are finding many cancers too late. Multi-cancer early detection offers a new approach for screening people that can find a signal shared by multiple cancers before symptoms appear, in early stages,” said Jeffrey Venstrom, MD, Chief Medical Officer at GRAIL. “We are pleased to collaborate with payors like BeniComp that share in our commitment to early detection, when outcomes are more likely to be favorable.”

About Galleri®
The Galleri multi-cancer early detection test can detect a signal shared by more than 50 types of cancer, as defined by the American Joint Committee on Cancer Staging Manual, through a routine blood draw. When a cancer signal is detected, the Galleri test predicts the cancer signal origin, or the tissue or organ associated with the cancer signal, with high accuracy to help guide the next steps to diagnosis. The Galleri test requires a prescription from a licensed health care provider and should be used in addition to recommended cancer screenings such as mammography, colonoscopy, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test, or cervical cancer screening. It is recommended for use in adults with an elevated risk for cancer, such as those aged 50 or older.

Important Galleri Safety Information
The Galleri test is recommended for use in adults with an elevated risk for cancer, such as those aged 50 or older. The Galleri test does not detect all cancers and should be used in addition to routine cancer screening tests recommended by a healthcare provider. Galleri is intended to detect cancer signals and predict where in the body the cancer signal is located. Use of Galleri is not recommended in individuals who are pregnant, 21 years old or younger, or undergoing active cancer treatment.

Results should be interpreted by a healthcare provider in the context of medical history, clinical signs and symptoms. A test result of “Cancer Signal Not Detected” does not rule out cancer. A test result of “Cancer Signal Detected” requires confirmatory diagnostic evaluation by medically established procedures (e.g. imaging) to confirm cancer.

If cancer is not confirmed with further testing, it could mean that cancer is not present or testing was insufficient to detect cancer, including due to the cancer being located in a different part of the body. False-positive (a cancer signal detected when cancer is not present) and false-negative (a cancer signal not detected when cancer is present) test results do occur. Rx only.

Laboratory/Test Information
GRAIL’s clinical laboratory is certified under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA) and accredited by the College of American Pathologists. The Galleri test was developed, and its performance characteristics were determined by GRAIL. The Galleri test has not been cleared or approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. GRAIL’s clinical laboratory is regulated under CLIA to perform high-complexity testing. The Galleri test is intended for clinical purposes.
