Greenlick Wants Free Comprehensive Colon Screenings; Insurers Want Delay

A relatively new colon cancer screening is cheap, effective and can be done at home, but sometimes insurance companies charge consumers for a follow-up colonoscopy if they’ve already paid for a fecal immunochemical test. HB 2560 would give consumers the guarantee that both tests would be free and encourage them to get tested.

An easy, relatively new test has the potential to greatly increase the number of people who receive screenings for colon cancer, thereby catching the presence of the disease early, when it still stands a high chance of eradication.
