A Great Day in the Fight Against Cancer!

A Great Day in the Fight Against Cancer!

In August 2014, Exact Sciences’ Cologuard became the first medical product ever to receive simultaneous FDA and CMS approval. However, in November 2015, the USPSTF released a draft of its colorectal cancer screening recommendations listing Cologuard as an “Alternative Test” — a designation that would have had profound consequences for all coverage decisions tied to the USPSTF recommendations.

Today, we proudly announce that the USPSTF released a finalized version of its recommendations that removes the “Alternative Test” designation and unambiguously includes Cologuard in its A rated preventative care package. Cologuard — the latest technological advancement in non-invasive colorectal cancer screening — will now be covered for millions more Americans across the United States.

A truly great day in the fight against cancer!
