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.

Craig-Hallum says to buy Exact Sciences
Craig-Hallum said it would be buyers of Exact Sciences following the inclusion of Colguard in Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set, or HEDIS. The firm's analyst said HEDIS will drive both payor coverage and provider adoption of Cologuard as physicians now have a greater incentive to order Cologuard and payors have an increased incentive to facilitate Cologuard adoption.
