"A 'D' grade from the USPSTF will discourage many healthcare providers from using PSA testing at all; will justify non-coverage of PSA testing by many payers; and will also discourage men and their doctors from even beginning conversations about individual risk or the need for the test," explained Scott Williams, Vice President of Men's Health Network.
