Under the Affordable Care Act, the health care reform law passed in 2010, most insurance plans must cover screening for colorectal cancer. Depending on your insurance plan, you may be able to get screened at no cost to you.
- If you have Medicare, find out about Medicare coverage for different colorectal cancer screening tests.
- If you have private insurance, talk to your insurance company to find out what’s included in your plan.
- If you don’t have insurance, you can still get important screening tests. To learn more, find a health center near you.
