Join the movement in Telling Congress to Support the Removing Barriers to Colorectal Cancer Screening Act


Colorectal cancer advocates are on the Capitol Hill today asking for support for HR 1070/S 2348 the Removing Barriers to Colorectal Cancer Screening Act of 2013, which would eliminate cost sharing for Medicare beneficiaries if a polyp is found and removed during what would have been a free preventive screening.


Adding your voice to those inside the halls of Congress will send a clear message to the lawmakers that this error in the law must be corrected in order to improve access to screenings and drive down the incidence of colon cancer.
