if we consider cologuard the colon cancer "screening test", a colonoscopy (for a positive cologuard) is no longer a screening test it becomes a diagnostic test. And insurers will reimburse only a certain amount for a diagnostic test and if you haven't met your deductible and you'll pay a big chunk of billed charges.
in the same way if you're in the middle of the screening colonoscopy and it suddenly becomes diagnostic because polyps are found and removed
In the same way screening mammogram leads to a diagnostic mammogram or possibly an ultrasound. Those procedures are covered differently by insurance
There was a great post yesterday (that has now disappeared) following the course of hpv testing (digene) thru its early stages and outlining that hpv testing for cervical cancer screening was standard of care in medical practice for years before USPTFS finally included it in the guidelines.
Believe me not one doctor being visited today by a cologuard sales person has a clue about the snafu that came out of USPTFS a few days ago.
What is no surprise is the shorts have very few shares left to borrow.
