To get Cologuard, you can start by setting up a virtual visit with your AgelessRx provider, who will determine if Cologuard is right for you and provide a prescription if appropriate.

If you’re approved, your prescription will be sent to Exact Sciences, who will contact you directly to help you complete the process.

How does Cologuard work?

Cologuard detects specific changes in the DNA and the presence of blood in your stool, which can be indicators of cancer or precancerous polyps. Each sample is analyzed by a US-licensed laboratory technician at Exact Sciences, the pathology company who launched Cologuard, who will deliver a positive or negative confirmation based on your sample.

Please note that a negative result does not rule out colorectal cancer, and a positive result is not a diagnosis. Cologuard should be used in addition to routine cancer screening tests with your healthcare provider, who will help you interpret your results and advise you on next steps.

How accurate is Cologuard?

Cologuard can detect 94% of colorectal cancer and 42% of precancerous polyps. Cologuard also has a 13% false-positive rate, with an 8% false-negative rate.

Cologuard has been shown to be effective in detecting certain DNA and blood markers associated with colorectal cancer, but Cologuard does not provide a positive or negative diagnosis of cancer. Like all tests, it is not 100% accurate and may not detect all cancers. For this reason, it’s best utilized as an alternative screening tool for those at average risk of colorectal cancer, and not as a replacement for colonoscopies. You should consult your primary care physician about your Cologuard results to determine next steps.
