Susan Posted Thu 01st of May, 2014 13:01:03 PM

Does medicare have a cutoff age of 85 for a colonoscopy whether it be
a screening or diagnostic? This info was passed on to us by a staff member and the coders have never heard of this....please advise

All people age 50 or older with Medicare are covered. People of any age are eligible for a colonoscopy.

No cuttoff age. Please ask him if he has source to confirm this.

Thanks,
