Hoping for increased coverage for colonoscopy screenings for Medicare beneficiaries

Dr. Bryan T. Green of Digestive Disease Group, PA went to Washington, D.C. again this year on March 4th and 5th to meet with several senators and congressman to advocate for eliminating the “polyp penalty” for Medicare beneficiaries. This “penalty” occurs when a polyp is detected and removed during a Medicare screening colonoscopy and results in the patient having a cost share for the procedure rather than having it fully covered as a screening exam.
