New Data Reveals That Gaps in Coverage for Those With Private Insurance Are Major Barriers to Colorectal Cancer Screening
Date:3/6/2009

The Jay Monahan Center for Gastrointestinal Health, and the Entertainment Industry Foundation's National Colorectal Cancer Research Alliance (EIF's NCCRA).

Now entering its sixth year, the Colorectal Cancer Legislation Report Card initiative continues to make an impact -- galvanizing the most influential organizations in the fight against colon cancer in order to generate crucial awareness of the importance of screening, and to affect the legislative landscape in a long list of states.

Data were weighted using propensity score weighting to be representative of the total U.S. adult population on the basis of region, age within gender, education, household income, race/ethnicity, and propensity to be online.
