Established in 1937 by the Georgia legislature at the request of physicians, the Georgia Cancer State Aid (CSA) Program provides support for cancer treatment to vulnerable populations including: uninsured and under-insured, and Georgia adults with limited annual household income. Each year, state funds are designated for the Georgia CSA Program to support payment of cancer-related services.
In an effort to reduce the burden of cancer, the Georgia CSA Program strives to address Healthy People 2020 National Objectives and state priorities by increasing access to early cancer detection and treatment.
Detection: To provide payments for cancer-related diagnostic testing of conditions medically evaluated to be highly suspicious for cancer.
Evaluation and Treatment Planning Support: To provide payments for cancer staging and treatment planning for Georgians who have a cancer diagnosis, but have not yet received a comprehensive medical workup.
Cancer Treatment Support: To provide standard cancer treatment services to patients whose prognosis and planned treatments are medically eligible for program funding.
