Cologuard

 

Stool DNA Test - Colon Cancer Screening


What is Cologuard?

Cologuard is an easy noninvasive colon cancer screening test that can be used at home. The advanced DNA test was FDA approved in 2014 after the most extensive study ever conducted (Link) and was quickly approved by Medicare, and was put on American Cancer Societies list of approved colorectal cancer screening tests (Link). The test is recommended every 3 years.


What is the cost of the Cologuard through the ColonoscopyAssist program?

The cost of the DNA Test is :

  • $599 inclusive of a physician prescription and all shipping costs.

 

How do I order Cologuard?

You can order Cologuard using the following link below :

Once ordered, you will receive a kit via UPS within 1 week. All instructions and a pre-paid shipping label will be included in the package. Once a stool sample is taken, the package will be picked up by UPS and returned to the Cologuard lab. You will receive a result from ColonoscopyAssist within 2 weeks.

 

Does Cologuard make sense for me?

If you are 50 years of age or older at average risk, or if you've been avoiding screening, you can use Cologuard as a noninvasive option.
There is no bowel prep required, no direct risk to the colon and no pre-test diet changes required.

That being said, Cologuard is not for everyone. It is not a replacement for diagnostic or surveillance colonoscopy in patients at high risk for colorectal cancer.

Did you know?

Pathology is usually the most expensive part of an Upper Endoscopy procedure. Random biopsies and swabs are routinely taken and sent to labs to test for rule out issues. It is very normal to have 3 or 4 separate lab tests run on each specimen sometimes resulting in hefty pathology bill.

The ColonoscopyAssist Program includes all pathology costs in its flat all inclusive rate. You will never be surprised by a pathology bill again.
