Colon Cancer Screening Resources 

We have compiled a listing of resources for radiologists who perform CT colonography (CTC), including patient-friendly information on the CTC exam and private payer coverage.

Private Payer Coverage


Colorectal cancer (CRC) screening recommendations from the United States Preventive Services Task Force assigned an “A” grade to USPSTF-recognized CRC screening exams, including CT colonography (virtual colonoscopy).

Until and unless the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is repealed, the ACA would require private insurers to fully cover (with no co-pay) these screening exams — including CTC. 

While Congress debates ACA repeal, the following is a current list of insurance providers that cover CTC  screening irrespective of ACA requirements:
  • Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (CA, CO, CT, IN, KY, ME, MO, NV, NH, OH, VA, WI)
  • Blue Choice (SC)
  • Blue Cross and Blue Shield (GA, TN, TX)
  • Cigna
  • Empire (NY)
  • Excellus (NY)
  • Humana
  • Independence Blue Cross
  • Kaiser Permanente (MD, DE, PA, NJ, NY)
  • Priority Health (MI)
  • United Healthcare (UHC) River Valley (AR, GA, IL, IA, NC, OH, SC, TN, VA)
  • Unicare
