CMS Denial of Coverage for Virtual Colonoscopy May Cost Lives
Date:5/12/2009

strating that the disparity between white and non-white Medicare enrollees receiving a colonoscopy screening increased between 1995 and 2003.

"Providing Medicare patients an effective and less invasive screening tool for colorectal cancer can help overcome the disparity in colorectal care that exists in minority communities. This noncoverage determination is a setback to efforts to provide better care to underserved areas of the population. Congress needs to act now to help minority and underserved populations gain access to this potentially life saving care," said McFarland.
