  • Double Whammy Is Exactly The Wrong Prescription For Cologuard  [View article]
    http://mayocl.in/1L6NrYM


    Since 1980, the incidence of right-side colorectal adenocarcinomas has gradually increased; today, they account for half of all colon tumors in the U.S. and 60 percent of those in Olmsted County, Minnesota. Yet current screening methodologies are biased toward left-side tumors. Large case-control and cohort studies in Canada, the U.S. and elsewhere have found that screening colonoscopy is less effective in lowering mortality and incidence of right-side CRC. Cologuard, on the other hand, performs equally well on both sides of the colon.

    Dr. Kisiel says the ideal test should also:

    Be easy to use
    Require no bowel prep or medication or dietary restrictions
    Be widely available
    Cologuard, which is mailed to patients at home and requires only a stool sample, meets all these requirements. "Although colorectal cancer is almost entirely preventable, it is the second-leading cause of cancer mortality in adults in the United States, mainly because 1 in 3 people who are eligible for screening don't participate. Colonoscopy, the most widely used screening method, is expensive and requires bowel prep, sedation and time off work, both for patients and a friend or family member to drive them home, and people are simply reluctant to undergo it. We tried to eliminate as many of those barriers as possible," he says.

    Cologuard also eliminates problems of operator variability. As Dr. Ahlquist points out, "Many studies demonstrate that polyp detection can vary as much as sixfold among endoscopists within the same center. With Cologuard, there is no operator, and no statistically significant difference in reporting among different labs, so the test may actually encourage colonoscopists to do a better job."

    As for cost-effectiveness, at $599 — of which Medicare is expected to pay $502 — Cologuard is more expensive than FIT, but less than colonoscopy. Cost-effectiveness analysis was performed by an independent third party and has been studied by a number of payor organizations. Drs. Kisiel and Ahlquist say pricing in other countries will be flexible, depending on the cost of screening practices there.

  • Double Whammy Is Exactly The Wrong Prescription For Cologuard  [View article]
    The numbers of persons who would need to be screened to detect one cancer were 154 with colonoscopy, 166 with DNA testing, and 208 with FIT.

    This is from the article link above in NEJM.

    If you'd like to pay for Cologuard out of pocket, the maximum cost is $649.

    Colonoscopy pricing frequently varies by over 300% in many locations. It is not uncommon to find colonoscopy pricing below $1,000 or above $3,000. You will need to ask about the price of your colonoscopy before you have your procedure and make sure the price covers the physician, facility and anesthesia (if required).
