Health insurer Cigna again this year is urging Americans to get tested for colorectal cancer, sending members ages 50 to 64 information about tests including colonoscopy, and offering a free in-home screening kit. Data from last year's campaign showed nearly 31,000 members who received the information had a CRC screening, 48.8% of colonoscopies detected polyps that were removed and 1.2% of patients screened were diagnosed with colon cancer.
