    Generally, yes. The National Comprehensive Cancer Network has recently revised their guidelines for BRCA genetic testing to include individuals who are diagnosed with a triple negative breast cancer under the age of 60. Many insurance providers have adopted these guidelines into their criteria for coverage.
