The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has funded the Connecticut Colorectal Cancer Control Program to increase and optimize the appropriate use of high-quality colorectal cancer all screening among persons 50 years and older and to reduce disparities in colorectal cancer burden, screening and access to care.

 

The Department of Public Health (DPH) directs the program in collaboration with the following twelve (12) select health care facilities. At each of these health care facilities you may be eligible to receive a no-cost colonoscopy and be referred to a primary care physician for follow-up services.

 

To be eligible to receive a no-cost colonoscopy, you:

  • Must be asymptomatic and at average risk for colorectal cancer 
  • Must be between the ages of 50-64
  • Must be at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Level
  • Have no health insurance (uninsured)
 
 

Please note that a brief medical history and physical exam will be conducted to determine if you are medically eligible to undergo the colonoscopy procedure.
