VC is now being reimbursed by insurance carriers in approximately 30 states within the U. S. Both the US House and Senate have introduced legislation that will require coverage of VC as a colon cancer screening benefit under Medicare. Adding CTC to the list of approved screening services will increase compliance with screening guidelines and has the potential to reduce unnecessary deaths from this cancer.
Every year over 50,000 Americans die from colorectal cancer in the U.S. and another 150,000 new cases of colorectal cancer are diagnosed. Colorectal Cancer is more than 90% preventable through early screening. Viatronix has been a leader in the field of virtual colonoscopy for over a decade and has supported research with a goal to provide the patients with a less invasive screening alternative.
