New policies are making colorectal cancer (CRC) screening free to more people and eliminating surprise bills, but only if doctors and facilities submit the correct procedure and diagnosis codes. A new AGA guide can help you identify the correct codes and outline how to help patients who get an unexpected bill after undergoing a colorectal cancer screening.

View the guide for the most common CRC screening tests, how to code for them, and what patients with commercial insurance and Medicare can usually expect to pay.
