Coverage available in Madison for stool colon cancer screening test

Posted: Updated:
 MADISON (WKOW) -- Officials with Medicare and Medicaid have approved covering a colon cancer screening test created by a Madison company.

Exact Sciences announced Thursday that it received official word that Medicare Part B will cover the Cologuard stool DNA test once every three years for people between the ages of 50 and 85.

The coverage is for regular screenings for everyone, not just for people who show symptoms of colon cancer.
