Insurance information:

Commercial Insurance Coverage Process:

The majority of the states have passed legislation requiring commercial insurance providers to cover the CTC screening exam. The law may refer to colorectal cancer screening modalities generically, or specifically identify all the procedures endorsed by the American Cancer Society or the United States Task Force Services (USPSTF) recommendation on Colorectal Cancer (CRC) screening. Regardless of the wording, insurance carriers in these states should not deny a claim for this method of screening. *
