You can search for free or low-cost screening in your state, territory, or tribe on the CDC website. Or you can call the CDC at 1-800-232-4636.
If you find out you have cancer through the NCCCEDP, you might be able to get Medicaid benefits to cover treatment costs. If you don’t have insurance and are under 65 years of age, check with your state’s health department to find out if you qualify.
