Listed within these resources are HRSA federally funded health centers which offer medical services to individuals even if they don't have insurance.  Services are provided on fees based upon an ability to pay.  It is important for those who have Lynch syndrome to realize there are resources for cancer screening, once diagnosed.

The HRSA facilities are family health centers and are often operated by general practitioners and women's medical health professionals.  It is important to use these facilities in a manner of first consulting the GP and providing him with the family history for assessment.  The GP will then order specific testing and make referrals as needed, to other facilities which offer services which are provided on fees based upon an ability to pay.

As well, resources include the CDC and other states' Colonoscopy programs, which are also provided with fees which are based upon an ability to pay.
