Webinar on Waiving Colonoscopy Co-Pays

This webinar will repeat the workshop: Everything you need to know about colonoscopy copays, including how one health plan made the switch to waiving copays, which was a workshop hosted at NCCRT’s 2016 annual meeting. The purpose of the webinar is to provide a better understanding of the copay issue, as well as what is being done to address it.
