There are many benefits to participating in AHS Cancer Screening Programs, including, receiving letters to help you keep on top of screening and results; and, supporting your healthcare provider to know when you’re overdue for follow-up screening.
We realize some Albertans might prefer not to take part. If you choose not to participate, you’ll still have full access to cancer screening services through your healthcare provider.
There are 2 levels of non-participation:
- No letter option: If you choose this option, you’ll no longer receive letters from the program(s) but your healthcare provider will continue to receive reminder letters from us if you are overdue for follow-up tests.
To stop letters, please call us at 1-866-727-3926 or complete this form and fax it to us at 1-888-944-3388.
- Exclusion: If you choose this option, neither you nor your healthcare provider will receive any letters from the program(s).
To be excluded from any of these programs, call AHS Screening Programs toll-free at 1-866-727-3926 during regular office hours, Monday to Friday 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. Our staff would be happy to assist you.
If you change your mind and would like to receive letters from us again, or rejoin the programs, call us at 1-866-727-3926.
