Every service offered by The Rose is available to the uninsured through one of many sponsorship programs. In fact the whole purpose of the Empower Her® Sponsorship Program is to ensure any woman has access to breast cancer screening, diagnosis and care. From the initial screening mammogram, through diagnostic procedures such as ultrasound and biopsies as well as access to treatment—all are a part of The Rose’s care for every woman. Sponsorship criteria for uninsured women is based on need and financial status.
If a patient is diagnosed with breast cancer, our Empower Her® Sponsorship Program provides guidance through the medical maze. Empower Her® includes Patient Navigators who are by the patient's side when the diagnosis is shared and offer one-on-one advocacy and mentoring support through the entire process of diagnosis, to physician referral, to treatment. Patient navigation services include assistance with paperwork, translation, education, prosthesis, and access to any resource individuals may need to expedite healing and recovery.
When additional procedures or treatment not provided by The Rose are required, patients may be connected to our Physician Network—more than 500 physicians who have agreed to donate services to one patient a year. Through the Physician Network, The Rose has seen millions of dollars in services provided each year at no cost to our patients.
