    jpc-53 An IHC Insurance plan is not part of the qualifications from what I am reading.

    What I am reading is to start they will provide an opportunity when one is getting blood drawn for other reasons like health care. Later they may recruit more people.

    So in my case I have an IHC health provider but other insurance plans. Yearly I get some routine screening blood draws. During that time I will probably be asked if I want an additional vial drawn for this research project. This minimizes costs involved collecting samples.

    So if IHC isn't in your insurance plan you can't participate in the study? That is unfortunate.
