Sage Screening Resources for Providers & Professionals
The Sage Screening Program is a partnership between public health and the private healthcare system throughout the state of Minnesota. This partnership removes the barrier of cost, so those eligible for Sage can receive quality breast and cervical cancer screening free of charge.
Becoming a Sage provider
At this time we are not expanding the Sage network and therefore not accepting new Sage providers. Please check back at a later date or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.

Sage maintains a call center, staffed by multi-lingual patient navigators, who answer calls Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Patient Navigators assist callers in determining program eligibility, identifying and addressing barriers to screening, scheduling appointments and providing referrals to appropriate resources. Call 1-888-643-2584.
The Sage Program Follow-up Coordinator tracks patients enrolled into the Sage Program that require additional follow-up/testing from an abnormal screening. Sage follow-up contacts will receive a Sage Program Abnormal Follow-up Form for an abnormal screening test result. Follow-up forms are created by Sage and sent to our follow-up clinic contact at the site, the forms need to be completed with the clinical follow-up information.
To learn more about follow-up diagnostics, MA-BC, and other treatment resources, visit: Following up on Abnormal Results.
