Patient Navigation Programs

Breast cancer mortality rates are higher in Ohio than almost anywhere else in the country. The investment in innovative community programs aligns with Susan G. Komen®’s bold goal to reduce he number of breast cancer deaths by 50 percent in the U.S. by 2026.

Whether you have insurance and need help understanding your benefits or connecting to a local provider, or you are uninsured and need help paying for medical care from screening through diagnostics, our navigators can assist you. Our 8 navigator networks involve many clinics, screening providers, diagnostic providers and healthcare systems. Though the navigators are your points of contact at the organizations below, financial assistance is available at most central and southeast Ohio medical providers through one of these programs.
