Design of CRC testing questions on the 2007 Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey with analytic samples (n = 3,276). ‡Participants who had previously heard of or received a screening by FOBT (fecal occult blood test) or sigmoidoscopy/colonoscopy were asked if they knew that Medicare helps to pay for colon cancer screening, n = 3,130. *Those who have never heard of colonoscopy were considered not to have previously received a recommendation and thus included in the dominator for this analysis.
