There are countless ways to take action on Colorectal Cancer. Here are just a few ideas from our partner organizations.
Urge Your Senators to Support the Removing Barriers to CRC Screening Act
Screening colonoscopy is covered under Medicare without beneficiary cost sharing, but if a polyp is removed during screening, the patient is required to pay a coinsurance. This Policy is unfair and confusing to patients and deters screening.
Contact your representatives in congress to earch them to pass the Removing Barriers to Colorectal Cancer Screening Act (S. 2348/H.R. 1070).
