Health Care System FactorsSince June 2016, the USPSTF^1^ has recommended screening for colorectal cancer starting at age 50 years and continuing until age 75 years.
Other health care system factors associated with colorectal cancer screening include '''health insurance status''' ([https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6608696/ Freund et al., 2019]), having a '''usual source of primary care''', and '''visiting a doctor in the past 12 months''' ([https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6093265/ Hall et al., 2018]).
