Founded in 1993, the Center for Community Health & Prevention's Cancer Services Program of the Finger Lakes Region (CSP-FLR), formerly known as the Cancer Services Program of Monroe County, and previously as the Women's Health Partnership, is part of a larger statewide initiative run by the NYS Department of Health’s Cancer Services Program. CSP-FLR promotes age-appropriate breast, cervical and colorectal cancer screening for uninsured and under-insured men and women. The Cancer Services Program serves individuals in Monroe, Seneca, Yates, Livingston, Wayne and Ontario Counties.
The CSP-FLR does not perform the screenings, but pays for clinical breast exams and mammograms, pelvic exams and Pap tests, and FIT kits and/or colonoscopies at more than 150 clinics and providers across the Finger Lakes Region. The program also pays for follow-up diagnostic exams if there is an abnormal finding during a screening. In the unfortunate instance that cancer is found, the program will enroll eligible patients into the Medicaid Cancer Treatment Program (MCTP) for full coverage of treatment services.
The Cancer Services Program is affiliated with the Center for Community Health & Prevention of the University of Rochester Medical Center.
