Exact Sciences rises after NCQA updates colorectal cancer screening measure

The National Committee for Quality Assurance, or NCQA, announced that it has updated the HEDIS Colorectal Cancer Screening measure in order to respond to recently revised scientific guidelines by the US Preventive Services Task Force. The USPSTF recommends colorectal cancer screening that includes a variety of tests, and noted that offering more options and sharing decision making with patients may be an opportunity to improve screening rates. Colorectal Cancer Screening is a long-standing, widely used measure. Changes to the measure align with USPSTF recommendations, and will be published in the October Technical Specifications Update. The updated measure is effective for HEDIS 2017. Shares of Exact Sciences, which markets a non invasive screening test called Cologuard for the early detection of colorectal cancer and pre-cancer, are higher in afternoon trading after the NCQA's announcement of its update.

HCSC coverage of Cologuard could pressure other payors, says Baird
Baird analyst Catherine Ramsey noted that Health Care Service Corporation, or HCSC, which is the nation's largest customer-owned health insurance company as the owner of several Blue Cross and Blue Shield systems, has posted a pending medical policy that would provide coverage for Exact Sciences' Cologuard. Coverage of the test by HCSC would be a "significant win" and could help pressure other payors to update their policies, said Ramsey, who keeps an Outperform rating on Exact Sciences shares.

Craig-Hallum positive on HCSC, Florida Blue coverage of Exact Sciences Cologuard
Craig-Hallum analyst Bill Bonello notes that two payors, namely Health Care Service Corporation, or HCSC, and Florida Blue posted updated Medical Policies indicating that Exact Sciences' Cologuard may be "medically necessary" for colorectal cancer screening. The analyst believes this is a "very positive" indicator of how other payors will interpret the positive recommendation from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force issued in June. Further, he sees Exact Sciences as well positioned to become standard of care for colon cancer screening, which could be a $3B-$5B opportunity over time. Bonello reiterates a Buy rating and $26 price target on the shares.

Exact Sciences Cologuard to receive commercial payor coverage, says Craig-Hallum
After eviCore suggested that Exact Sciences' Cologuard may be considered for colorectal cancer screening once every three years, Craig-Hallum analyst Bill Bonello says he believes that at least one large health insurer, Highmark, has already elected to follow this policy. The analyst continues to believe that Cologuard will receive broad commercial payer coverage in light of the 2016 USPSFT final colorectal cancer screening recommendation and that increased payer coverage will drive increased test volumes. He reiterates a Buy rating and $26 price target on the shares.
