    Cologuard for colon cancer screening

    http://www.exactsciences.com/solution/screeningtest

    Good news - no bowel prep
    Not so good news - 13% false positive rate ( 13% of people without colon cancer or pre-cancer tested positive )

    Medicare approved coverage earlier this month.

    Hopefully private insurance will fall in line by early 2015.

    Out of pocket costs $600


    (I probably should have posted this in Science, Medicine and Technology - please move, if appropriate.)
