Talking to your patients

Here are a few talking points you can use when speaking to patients about colorectal cancer screening:

  • Colorectal cancer is the second most deadly form of cancer, but it doesn’t have to be.
  • Screening can prevent the cancer or catch it early when it’s highly treatable.
  • Most insurance plans cover 100% of the cost of screening with no co-pays or deductibles. Even without insurance, there are low cost, reliable options. Let’s talk about the one that is right for you.
  • Get screened!
  • Then, talk about your experience and encourage other people you know to be screened too.

Doctors and people who have already been screened can play a significant role in encouraging others to get screened. That’s why I strongly recommend screening and encourage already screened patients to share their experience.
