Regular preventative care and screenings can help identify potential health risks for early diagnosis and treatment.
Helping prevent disease and detecting potential health issues early is essential to living a healthier life.
Be sure to discuss specific health questions and concerns with your primary care physician.
Novant Health and NHRMC physicians, team members and dependents have a new, less invasive option for a colon cancer screening that you can do at home.
- The new test, called a fecal immunochemical test or FIT, is available to all Novant Health and NHRMC physicians and team members who are 50 years or older and do not have a personal or family history of colon cancer or gastrointestinal issues. This less invasive screening must be performed once a year rather than once every three years, but it can replace the need for a colonoscopy.
- This test will be covered if you have team member health benefits as this falls under preventative screenings. If you have selected dependents on your healthcare plan, they can also take advantage of this new screening tool.
How to request this new screening option
- Physicians and team members can ask their primary care physicians to order the test or can request it themselves in MyChart.
- Team members who want to use this screening option can request this test to be mailed to your home or can pick it up and return the test to their primary care physician or by mail.
Colon cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States, and more than 90 percent of cases occur in people who are age 50 or older. But colon cancer is preventable and treatable with regular testing like the screening.
