Cancer Services Program - Ontario, Seneca, and Yates Counties
The Cancer Services Program of Ontario, Seneca and Yates Counties (CSP) provides free screenings for colorectal, cervical and breast cancers for uninsured men and women.
This program is funded by New York State and the federal government. The grant is currently being administered by Clifton Springs Hospital and Clinic. The program provides breast, cervical, and colorectal screenings FREE to women aged 40 years and older, and men ages 50 years and older who are uninsured or under-insured and who are at or below 250% of the federal poverty level
Some women under 40 years of age are also eligible for mammograms if they have a family history of breast cancer or an abnormal breast finding.
In addition to cancer screening services, the program provides case management services to assist individuals who require diagnostic follow-up after their initial screenings.
Case Management services help with:
Navigating the health care system
Obtaining child care services
Obtaining translation services
If an individual is diagnosed with breast, cervical or colorectal cancer through the program, it is likely that they will be eligible for a special Medicaid insurance while they are receiving cancer treatment.
