Preventive Screenings


Colon cancer CAN be prevented Get the screening that’s best for you! Each year, over 140,000 Americans are diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and more than 50,000 die from this disease. The good news is that this is one of the few cancers that can be PREVENTED before it starts. That’s why timely screening is so important.

The US Family Health Plan covers several different kinds of colon cancer screening tests at a $0 copay! See the table below to learn about each kind of screening and then talk with your doctor about which screening is right for you:

NOTE: If the doctor finds and removes (pre)cancerous tissue during the examination, the test will change from a “screening” test to a “medical" procedure. A copayment may be charged.
