The Avon Safety Net Program supports institutions and organizations that have traditionally cared for uninsured, at-risk, low-income and minority patients to further our commitment of enabling medically underserved women and men to access post-screening diagnostics and care.
The emphasis of this initiative is to provide public, community, and safety net hospitals and health care systems with patient navigation programs, partial equipment support, and other personnel and infrastructure support that will enhance their breast cancer care services to the medically underserved. The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade does not pay for the reimbursement of direct costs of care.
