The Calls to Congress are done – for now, but Support of H.R. 4120 still needed

Seniors’ access to a screening colonoscopy is at risk and YOU can help! We need you to continue to add your voice and urge your Representative to support H.R. 4120! Simply submit an Action Alert. H.R. 4120, the Removing Barriers to Colorectal Cancer Screening Act of 2012, will fix a regulation that requires Medicare beneficiaries to pay coinsurance when their screening colonoscopy involves the removal of a polyp. The current policy can cost patients $100 to $300 and serve as a deterrent to screening. We need cosponsors for this legislation if it is to pass into law & YOU can help!
