Your 1199SEIU Patients Are Getting Screened for Colon Cancer at Low Rates

Although early detection is key to successfully treating colon cancer, only 40 percent of 1199SEIU members over age 45 have been screened for the disease—well below the national average.

You are our most important partner in helping our members—your patients—get screened. We regularly communicate the importance of colon cancer screenings to our members and provide coverage not only for colonoscopies but also for Cologuard, the at-home screening method. While we understand that Cologuard may not be right for all patients, we encourage you to discuss this alternative with your 1199SEIU patients for whom it may be appropriate but who are reluctant to get a colonoscopy. For more information about the Cologuard Collection Kit, please visit www.CologuardTest.com.
