Delaware Cancer Treatment Program - In May 2004, Delaware created and funded a program to pay for treatment for the uninsured diagnosed with cancer. The state-funded program, administered by the Delaware Division of Social Services, provides treatment for uninsured individuals up to 650 percent FPL who meet certain eligibility criteria.
