This report includes states’ coverage of multiple types of colorectal screenings—including colonoscopies, fecal occult blood tests, flexible sigmoidoscopies, and double contrast barium enema screenings—and the legislation, or lack thereof, in place to ensure that people can pay for these screenings.
