Leaving soon for brand management role in CPG which I’m really excited about but curious if this will close the door to opportunities (product marketing, non technical product manager) in tech in the future.

12 weeks today. I was hoping I would be able to get DNA genetic testing today but my insurance still hasn’t approved the testing. I have up until Friday to see if it’s approved if not I can get another test but it’s a 90% detection rate ($300). The other test is 97% and out of pocket it’s about $3K. How would you guys proceed?... Just take the $300 test if the other isn’t approved in time?
