Cancer Prevention and Screening Program

Address the costs of cancer with convenient prevention and screening

Currently, cancer treatment is the top driver of healthcare costs.1 Screenings and prevention can identify cancers earlier in their progression when they are easier and far less costly to treat. However, obstacles in traditional healthcare are resulting in significant gaps in uptake. Color’s Cancer Prevention and Screening Program can directly reduce healthcare spend on cancer treatment by making prevention and screening happen wherever your populations are.

Prevention and its impact on cancer-related costs

On average, the annual healthcare costs incurred by patients with cancer are about 4 to 5 times higher than those without cancer.8, 9 Generally, earlier detection of cancer can not only improve outcomes but can significantly reduce cancer-related costs. That’s where Color comes in.

How it works

Our Cancer Prevention and Screening Program combines four key elements to ensure populations are up to recommended cancer screening guidelines.
Here’s how:

Screenings Cancer Digital

Identify individuals who need screenings

We ensure each person gets access to the right tests and help them take the next step by conducting individualized health assessments and providing a personalized screening and detection plan – all in one seamless process.

Products Cancer Screenings

Make screenings convenient

Our personalized plans consider risk and need to provide participants with appropriate, convenient, and accessible screenings. Where possible, we provide participants with at-home tests to screen for cervical, colorectal, or prostate cancer. When in-person screening is needed, we help participants find, schedule, and complete accessible in-network care.

Cancer Color Consultation

Ensure individuals get screened

Our Care Advocates guide participants through every step of the process to support follow-through with screening plans and participant satisfaction. They help schedule appointments, provide reminders for screenings, help participants understand insurance costs, and based on results, help arrange next steps as needed.

Color Behavioral Health Publichealth

Empower prevention behaviors

We provide coaching, support and clinical care to drive established, preventive care interventions–whether it’s helping participants lose weight, stop smoking, exercise more, or improve mental health. We also provide educational programming on prevention such as resources and workshops around Breast Cancer Awareness month and Movember. By helping participants take the right preventive actions, Color is making it easier to address cancer risk directly.

It’s a win-win situation because from a Fund perspective you’re looking at catching something early. So, you’re looking at savings there. And from a member’s perspective, you’re looking at catching something early and increasing your survival rate.
