Unexpected costs for colonoscopies under the ACA

A study that came out a few months ago showed that under the Affordable Care Act coverage, many people could be billed for a colonoscopy that should have been covered because they had a polyp removed during the procedure.That was because the ACA was unclear if this was covered.

But the government clarified this week that the ACA does cover polyp removal during screening. This is great news, as polyp removal can prevent colon cancer.
