- Summary of Services Provided
The Sage Screening Programs help keep Minnesotans healthy through screening and early detection of breast and cervical cancer. Screenings are provided at participating locations free of charge to people who qualify. The Sage Program has a wide network of partners that work together to reduce the burden of cancer by providing access to and promoting breast, cervical and colorectal cancer screening services for Minnesota’s uninsured and underinsured. Sage also has long-standing relationships with select clinics to provide funding for case management and screening services for breast, cervical and colorectal cancer. In addition, Sage has awarded grants for special projects that add to services by focusing on those people who are most in need of screening services.
Sage hosts screening events and does targeted outreach that both work to recruit and enroll patients into the Sage Programs. In addition, Sage maintains a Call Center, staffed by patient navigators who speak several languages. The navigators answer calls Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and assist Minnesota callers with program eligibility, identifying and addressing barriers to screening, scheduling appointments, and providing referrals to appropriate resources.
