Kentucky Colon Cancer Screening Program

The Kentucky Colon Cancer Screening Program (KCCSP) is a new program for low income, uninsured Kentuckians in ten regions across the state.  The program provides free colon cancer screening to Kentucky residents who meet certain eligibility requirements.  There may be a cost for a person to visit a medical home provider to be cleared for a colonoscopy. Through June 2014, services will be available in the areas served by the ten health departments who applied for and received funding.

To learn more about the program, please view the KCCSP brochure.  Additional information may also be found at the Kentucky Department of Public Health website at  http://chfs.ky.gov/dph/ColonCancer.htm
