March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

March 4, 2021 — Tonya Hayes

Did you know our health plan covers one colonoscopy every three (3) years after age forty-nine (49) for Non-Medicare Members.

Medicare covers screening colonoscopies once every 24 months if you’re at high risk for colorectal cancer. If you aren’t at high risk for colorectal cancer, Medicare covers the test once every 120 months, or 48 months after a previous flexible sigmoidoscopy. There’s no minimum age requirement.
