The eligibility criteria for financial assistance for breast cancer follow-up services in Rhode Island have been expanded to include some insured women, the Rhode Island Department of Health RIDOH announced today in a move intended to increase access to care amid a shifting health insurance landscape. The expansion will make these services available to insured women whose incomes fall beneath a certain level. But many women struggle to get recommended follow-up services after an abnormal finding because high co-pays, deductibles, and out-of-pocket expenses start to kick in," said Director of Health Nicole Alexander-Scott, MD, MPH. With support from the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation, RIDOH has already provided more than 38, uninsured or underinsured women with breast and cervical cancer screenings and follow-up services. Examples of breast cancer follow-up services include diagnostic breast imaging, breast ultrasounds, breast biopsy procedures, and lab work related to biopsies.
