En español | Medicare covers several colorectal screening tests to help find precancerous growths in the colon so they can be removed before they turn into cancer. Your Medicare copayment will vary depending on the screening. If your doctor finds growths, they may be removed at that time. However, you may need to pay the Medicare copayment for this extra procedure.
Check with your doctor about the various types of screening tests and any costs in addition to the screening.
