Cancer Services Program

Since the 1990s, the Cancer Services Program (CSP) has been providing breast, cervical and colorectal (also called colon) cancer screenings and follow-up 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 makes the cost of screening too high
  • Meet the program rules for age and income

The Cancer Services program of Steuben, Allegany, Cattaraugus & Chautauqua Counties serves the uninsured residents of those counties and is housed at St. James Hospital in Hornell NY. The CSP partners with a network of credentialed health care providers who provide cancer screening across the four-county service area.

If a cancer screening test finds something and more testing is needed, the CSP will cover most diagnostic services. Our case manager will stay by your side and provide you with many community resources available to help you during your diagnostic testing. In the event of a cancer diagnosis, a case manager works to enroll patients in the Medicaid Cancer Treatment Program.

The Medicaid Cancer Treatment Program is a Medicaid program for eligible persons who are found to be in need of treatment for breast, cervical, colorectal or prostate cancer. Enrollees must receive services from a Medicaid enrolled provider in order to have their services covered.
