Huntsman Cancer Institute and University of Utah Health are committed to helping those who have low incomes and limited or no insurance coverage gain access to timely, lifesaving cancer screenings. We recognize that many individuals do not receive the preventive care they need due to financial barriers. Our cancer screening voucher program is available to eligible Utah residents.

How Do I Access a Free Cancer Screening?
Cancer screening vouchers are coordinated through a central point of contact. Some cancer screenings require a visit to a primary care provider and a referral.
The Association for Utah Community Health provides primary and preventive medical services to patients with or without insurance. Find a community health center close to you. Eligible patients will be referred to and screened at Huntsman Cancer Institute or a University of Utah Health community clinic.
