C3: Colorectal Cancer Coalition is proud to support The Colorectal Cancer Screening and Detection Act of 2009 (HR 1330) introduced by Congressman Dan Boren (D-OK). The bill would require group and individual health insurance plans provide coverage of colorectal cancer screenings.
Americans age 50-64 are a critical group when considering colorectal cancer. HR 1330 will provide the same protections to non-Medicare beneficiaries that are already provided to Medicare beneficiaries.
Congressman Boren lost his mother to colon cancer, and personally understands the need for early detection of the disease.
