Costs of these different tests vary widely based not only on the type of test but also other fees (e.g.: administration fees, office visit, etc.).With the exception of the newly added tests – CTC and sDNA – Medicare and most insurers already cover most or all colorectal cancer screening tests. Based on the recommendations from this multi-organizational panel and those of other organizations it is conceivable that many major insurance plans will begin to cover the added tests (CTC and sDNA). As a result, these updated guidelines have a real possibility of contributing to greater access to colorectal cancer screening tests.
