NJCEED PROGRAM GOALS:
- To provide comprehensive breast, cervical, colorectal and prostate cancer screening and diagnostic services to uninsured/underinsured residents of New Jersey who meet income guidelines with special emphasis on the recruitment and screening of high-risk populations including racial and ethnic minorities.
- To provide all residents with education related to cancer awareness and healthy behaviors.
All persons receiving services under this agreement meet the established eligibility criteria:
- Have an income that is within 250% of the Federal Poverty Level. (The Federal Poverty Guidelines are issued each year in the Federal Register by the United States Department of Health and Human Services.) A "Declaration of Income Statement" will be required by each program participant.
- Have no third party insurance that covers cancer screening services, or be underinsured. As a general rule, persons covered by Medicaid or Medicare are not eligible to receive NJCEED Program services; however, in rare instances where these insurances do not cover cancer screening services, clients can be screened with Program funds if they meet all other eligibility requirements.
*The NJCEED Program remains the payor of last resort.
