We know at times it may be difficult to convince patients to complete a colorectal cancer (CRC) screening.

The CRC screening tool on the UnitedHealthcare Provider Portal can support you in navigating those challenging discussions. This tool helps patients better understand screening options and can help you improve screening participation rates.

It explains:

  • A traditional colonoscopy and noninvasive stool-collection tests
  • How each test is taken, the prep involved and the potential out-of-pocket cost
  • Which test is the best choice, based on the patient’s preferences

We encourage you to have these conversations during patient visits and submit orders for the screening that you, in partnership with the patient, identify as the best option.

If you have questions, contact Provider Services at 1-877-842-3210.
