Tools & Resources – Savings to Medicare from Increased Colorectal Cancer Screening
Report on potential savings to Medicare and pre-Medicare payors from increased colorectal cancer screening among 50-64 year olds.
The Lewin Group, in collaboration with the Roundtable experts, developed a cost model that explores how increased colorectal cancer (CRC) screening among pre-Medicare eligible individuals (aged 50-64 years) could translate into Medicare savings realized through earlier detection and treatment, specifically polypectomy and treatment of early stage cancer. The study also looked at net costs to pre-Medicare payors.
