About the Program
The Kentucky Colon Cancer Screening Program is a program funded for the first time in the 2012-2014 state budget that allows thousands of qualifying low-income, uninsured Kentuckians to get life-saving colon cancer screenings.
The state has allotted $1 million to the program in its budget, and a non-profit called the Kentucky Cancer Foundation is matching that amount.
