    Cologuard Test

    Scam

    My husband and I received a voicemail on our cell phones about a Cologuard Test being in the mail. One of us then received notification of an estimated delivery date from UPS. Neither of us had requested this test or discussed it with our health care provider. Like, total news to us!

    We contacted Exact Sciences via a Web chat and talked with "Nick". When Nick discovered that I'm a person, not a health care provider, he (?) shut the chat down.

    This feels very much like a scam. How did these people get our names, phone numbers, e-mail addresses? My name on my medical records is unique. Did my PCP order this? Did Medicare? Does my PCP get a benefit form completed tests? Does the proctologist get a benefit when a patient comes in for a full colonoscopy after a 'positive' result, even if that result was a false positive?

    I suspect this is a major scam on the patient and insurance companies with a tangible benefit to physicians or providers in general.

    Don't do it.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
