FREE CANCER SCREENINGS
CHCR is offering FREE breast, cervical and colorectal cancer screenings for uninsured patients. Women over the age of 40 who lack insurance are eligible for free Pap smears and mammograms. Free colorectal screening kits for at-home testing are available for uninsured men and women over the age of 50.
To obtain free pap smears and/or mammograms, patients should call CHCR to schedule annual exams with their ob-gyn providers. The Pap exam is free; free mammograms are performed in the mobile mammogram unit during its regularly scheduled visits to CHCR. To obtain a free colorectal at-home screening kit, an eligible patient needs to see his or her provider for an annual exam.
CHCR is partnering with the Breast Health Partnership and the New York State Cancer Services Program to provide the free screening. For more information about cancer screening, click here.
