United States Preventative Service Task Force (USPSTF) and PSA Guidelines

by admin on October 20, 2011

Recent news suggests that the United States Preventative Service Task Force will release new guidelines stating that healthy men should no longer receive a P.S.A. blood test to screen for prostate cancer in the general population.
The United States Preventive Services Task Force is an independent panel of experts in prevention and primary care appointed by the Department of Health and Human Services to review cost effective clinical preventive health care services.

ExamOne is currently reviewing the USPSTF recommendation and the medical research  behind their decision in regards to the current insurance medicine utility of the PSA test in the life insurance population.

We will keep you informed as we complete our review. If you have any questions, please contact your Strategic Account Executive.
