Have You Heard About The Cancer Services Program?
The Cancer Services Program is a grant-funded program through the New York State Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We provide free breast, cervical, and colon cancer screenings to the uninsured.
Women 40 and older:
Clinical Breast Exam
Men and Women 50 and older:
Colorectal cancer screening
Average Risk Patients will receive an easy FIT kit to do at home
If patient has a personal or family history of colon cancer or is
at increased risk for colon cancer, they will be scheduled for a colonoscopy.
All prep meds for this procedure will be provided.
If screening tests find something abnormal, diagnostic services are available through the CSP for eligible men and women at no cost.
If breast, cervical, or colon cancer is found, eligible men and women may be able to enroll in the NYS Medicaid Cancer Treatment program to receive full Medicaid coverage for the entire time they are being treated for cancer.
Men diagnosed with Prostate Cancer by a doctor in this program may be able to enroll in the Medicaid Cancer Treatment Program. The CSP does not pay for prostate cancer screening or diagnostic tests.
If patients have barriers to receiving care, we also offer supportive case management services.
