Current law requires health insurance carriers (carriers) to provide preventive health insurance coverage for colorectal cancer screenings in accordance with U.S. preventive services task force guidelines. The bill requires carriers to instead provide coverage for colorectal cancer screenings in accordance with American Cancer Society guidelines. The coverage must include coverage for a colonoscopy or other medical test or procedure for colorectal cancer screening and a follow-up colonoscopy, if necessary, and coverage for high-risk individuals additionally provide coverage for persons 45 years of age and older.
