COLORECTAL CANCER CONTROL PROGRAM/STAY IN THE GAME CT

 

DESCRIPTION

Stay in the Game CT is an educational campaign funded by the State of Connecticut Department of Public Health Colorectal Cancer Control Program (CCRCP). The CCRCP may provide no cost colonoscopies and referrals for diagnostic follow-up for Connecticut residents who meet the initial eligibility criteria.

ELIGIBILITY

  • Men and women 50 to 64 years of age
  • Income at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Level
  • Have no health insurance
  • Must be asymptomatic and at average risk for colorectal cancer
  • Have health insurance that excludes colonoscopy (underinsured)
  • Have a high insurance deductible

NOTE: Meeting these eligibility criteria does not guarantee that you will be medically eligible to receive a no cost colonoscopy. A brief medical history and physical exam will be conducted to determine medical eligibility to undergo the colonoscopy procedure.

If you have private insurance, Medicaid and Medicare, and do not have a primary health care provider, but need to be screened for colorectal cancer, contact your nearest Community Health Center to schedule an appointment with a Patient Navigator, who will support and guide you through the screening process.
