About the Cancer Services Program (CSP) Partnership
The CSP Partnership is a New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) program that works with contract administrators, and with doctors, nurses, and other health care providers to offer free, age-appropriate, risk-based screening for breast cancer, cervical (opening of the womb) cancer, and colorectal (the colon and rectum) cancer.
Screening tests can help find these cancers in early stages when they may be easier to treat. Sometimes, when these cancers are found and treated early, they can be cured. Contract administrators work with you, health care providers and the NYSDOH to provide the services described in this consent.
The Cancer Services Program (CSP) provides breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screenings and diagnostic services at NO COST to people who:
- Live in New York State
- Do not have health insurance
- Have health insurance with a cost share that may prevent a person from obtaining screening and/or diagnostic services
- Meet income eligibility requirements
- Meet age requirements
The Cayuga County Health Department partners with the Cortland County and Tompkins County Health Departments to provide tri-county residents with these screening services. Learn more about this tri-county program by clicking here.
