On August 27th, 2020, Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC), the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), the Prevent Cancer Foundation and the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable (NCCRT) hosted a State Policy Action Planning Session on removing out-of-pocket costs for colonoscopy following a positive non-invasive screening test.

The goal of the three-hour meeting was to bring together leaders in the colorectal cancer (CRC)  community including advocacy organizations, public policy professionals, researchers, clinicians, and others to discuss what can be done together to help address the challenges around enacting policy at the state level to increase access to colorectal cancer screening. 

This Executive Summary provides an overview of the meeting as well as next steps for developing resources and materials to support state policy efforts.
