Frequently Asked Questions
Who is Eligible for Cologuard?
- Health Tradition members who are 45 to 75 years of age are eligible for Cologuard. Cologuard may not be appropriate for everyone based on specific health factors or conditions. Talk to your doctor to see if Cologuard is right for you. Health Tradition must be your primary insurance.
How Often Can I receive a Colorectal Screening?
- Colorectal screening is a covered preventive service. The frequency of recommended screenings varies based on the type of screening (every three (3) years for Cologuard or every 10 years for in-person Colonoscopy). Ask your doctor if Cologuard is appropriate for your preventive screening.
What if results show DNA associated with cancerous growth?
- If you need a follow-up colonoscopy following the Cologuard screening, that will also be covered as a preventive benefit.
