Free Screenings Program at BHMH

BLUE HILL — Blue Hill Memorial Hospital (BHMH) is participating in the Maine Colorectal Cancer Program, which provides colorectal screening to average risk individuals who are uninsured or underinsured.


Five BHMH practices are taking part in the program: Blue Hill Women’s Health Care, Blue Hill Family Medicine, Bucksport Family Medicine, Castine Community Health Services and Island Family Medicine in Stonington.

Patients can complete an application in a practice office. Applications are then forwarded to Eastern Maine Medical Center, which assesses each application in terms of the patient’s age, income insurance status and clinical eligibility.

When an individual is eligible, the colonoscopies are scheduled at Blue Hill Memorial Hospital, typically within a short period of time.

For information on eligibility requirements, call (877) 320-6800.
