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.

 

Your Stories

Getting screened for colorectal cancer was a no brainer. It was easy. The difficult part was the prep and that wasn’t even that bad. Honestly, it was a piece of cake: go in, go to sleep and then go home. I plan to get screened again when it’s time and encourage people in my life to do the same.
