Have you heard of the Removing Barriers to Colorectal Cancer Screening Act? Here’s the lowdown on why it’s important: currently, seniors covered by Medicare have to pay a coinsurance if their physician finds and removes potentially pre-cancerous polyps during a colonoscopy. Can you imagine waking up from a colonoscopy to discover you owe money you weren’t prepared to pay?
That’s why the Removing Barriers to Colorectal Cancer Screening Act is so important—it would waive the cost for Medicare recipients when a polyp or other tissue is removed during a colonoscopy. We all know how important screening is to preventing colon cancer, so let’s spread the word to fight this disease!
Ask your representative to sign this letter and make prevention a priority!
