AGA helps break down barriers to CRC screening


Plans and issuers must provide coverage without cost sharing for plan or policy years beginning on or after May 31, 2022. While this new guidance will expand coverage of follow-up colonoscopies to many more individuals nationwide, including individuals who have coverage through Medicaid expansion, it does not apply to traditional Medicaid and Medicare plans.

The members of the CRC Screening Continuum Executive Committee includes Dr. Brill and Lieberman, as well as Uri Ladabaum, MD; Larry Kim, MD; Folasade May, MD, PhD, MPhil; Caitlin Murphy, MD; and Richard Wender, MD. Disclosures are on file with the AGA National Office.
