As of January 2022, policy changes were made regarding insurance coverage for follow-up colonoscopy, which became effective for plan years beginning on or after May 31, 2022. This rule change removes cost sharing for follow-up colonoscopies after a positive or abnormal result from a stool-based test. The hope is that this has a positive impact on an attempt to reduce costs for patients, removing a potential barrier to care and timely diagnosis, ultimately resulting in improved outcomes.
