Federal (CDC), state, and Komen funding Serves low-income clients without insurance, or with high deductibles Helps eligible clients get screened for breast, cervical, and colorectal cancers Connects clients with diagnostic services and treatment Pays for services Works to improve access/reduce barriers to care

6 HBOC Screening Options
BCCHP: Identify clients with family history of HBOC, and refer to genetic counseling Those diagnosed with breast cancer All enrolled clients Genetic counselors discuss contacting family members Beyond BCCHP: Providers ID women at risk, & make referrals. Use EMR capabilities?

7 Efforts So Far DOH revised questions about family history of breast/ovarian cancer on the BCCHP history & exam form Promoting: Cancer Family History Guide (developed by the Michigan Department of Community Health) Online Breast Cancer Genetics Referral Screening Tool (developed by Cecelia Bellcross, PhD, MS, CGC):

8 Challenges Data fields on forms vs. in data system
Ability to run reports of clients with family history Limited time, not highest priority

9 Challenges Training clinic staff
Possibility for inappropriate referrals Reality of EMRs Who to refer clients to? How to pay for genetic counseling and testing Will these be Essential Health Benefits?
