Commercial Patients

Out-of-pocket cost for Cologuard varies depending on the patient's insurance company and specific plan. We encourage patients to call their insurance company directly for the most up-to-date information.

Self-Pay Patients

The list price of Cologuard is $649.

Billing

Exact Sciences Laboratories handles the entire billing process and discusses billing and insurance with each patient before completing the order. After the Cologuard test is completed, there may be a remaining balance.

Our billing specialists will seek this payment from your patient's insurance carrier on their behalf. We may file several appeals; processes vary by carrier.

If the patient's insurance carrier does not pay the balance in full after our exhaustive efforts, it will become your patient's responsibility.

If your patient has any questions on billing or the status of their claim, our Customer Support Center is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 1-844-870-8878

We accept personal check, Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express. Patients can also pay their bill online by visiting CologuardTest.com.

Payments can be mailed to:

When making a payment patients need to include their payment stub and write their order number on the memo line of their check. The order number can be found near the top of the bill.
