    Cologuard Test

    Product is not reliable, will never use again

    Overall Experience:

    Will NEVER use this product again. Since I'm now 60 years of age, doctor and medicare requested I take this test. I am not having any problems at all, no family history of colon cancer so I was shocked when my doctor's office called and told me I had received a bad test result and would now have to have an actual colonoscopy. Saw the doctor my primary physician recommended but when I saw the cost for the procedure, facility, and other costs I put off having it done but had to pay a $49.00 specialist fee. After waiting several months and worrying myself to death over this, I contacted a local hospital since they have financial assistance programs and found a doctor there. Hopefully it will be cheaper. Well, I got my results and absolutely nothing is wrong, no sign of any problems and not even any polyps. Great news but now I have medical bills to pay which weren't necessary. I am on disability so funds are limited which really irritates me. Yes, Medicare will pay for the original Cologuard test but they don't pay for any follow-up tests or procedures as a result of a negative Cologuard. I guess if they give out bad results, Medicare is off the hook for payment and doctors still get to bill large dollar amounts. Needless to say, I'm out money and extremely upset and will never use this product ever again or recommend it to anyone else.

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