If screening tests find an abnormality, no-cost diagnostic services are also available through the CSP for eligible men and women.

If breast, cervical, or colon cancer is found, eligible men and women may be able to enroll in the NYS Medicaid Cancer Treatment program to receive full Medicaid coverage for the entire time they are being treated for cancer.
