§ 202. Clinical care of cancer patients; state aid

The board may furnish clinical care or diagnostic procedures for persons with cancer or suspicion of cancer. The board may grant state aid for the care of persons who have cancer or suspicion of cancer and are without means of providing for themselves adequate care as required by their condition, provided that the aid so granted shall not, in any individual case, exceed half the total bill. Notwithstanding any provisions of law to the contrary, the names of persons receiving aid under this section shall not be printed in any public report and the state board of health shall fix the maximum amount to be paid in any given case not to exceed $500.00 in any patient year.
