FIT at Fifty Eligibility
The FFHP provides comprehensive colorectal cancer screening and diagnostic services to low-income men and women, who are uninsured and meet the following demographic, financial, and medical eligibility guidelines.
- You must be 50 years of age and older.
- You must be an Arizona resident to enroll in the program.
- You have NOT had a colonoscopy in the past 10 years or a Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) in the last year.
- You do NOT have ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, or genetic syndromes such as familial adenomatous polyposis or hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer.
- You are uninsured.
To be eligible for the FIT at Fifty HealthCheck Program, you must have an income level between 133 and 250 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). If your income is below 133% of the FPL, you may be eligible for screening services through AHCCCS. Effective January 1, 2014, childless adults may apply for AHCCCS coverage. If you may be eligible for AHCCCS, it is in your best interest to pursue full health insurance coverage through their program. To see if you qualify, please visit the AHCCCS website.
If your income is between 250 and 400 percent of the FPL, you may be eligible to receive federal financial assistance when purchasing health insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace. Please note that Open Enrollment for the Health Insurance Marketplace ends March 31, 2014 and will resume November 15, 2014 - January 15, 2015.
|For families/households with more than 8 persons, add $4,060 for each additional person.|
