There is hereby created in the state treasury the breast and cervical cancer project income tax contribution fund, which shall consist of money contributed to it under section 5747.113 of the Revised Code and of contributions made directly to it. Any person may contribute directly to the fund in addition to or independently of the income tax refund contribution system established in section 5747.113 of the Revised Code.
The director of health shall distribute the contributed funds to the breast and cervical cancer project funded by the national breast and cervical cancer early detection program established under the "Breast and Cervical Cancer Mortality Prevention Act of 1990," 104 Stat. 409, 42 U.S.C. 300k et seq. The contributed funds shall be used specifically for the provision of breast and cervical cancer screening, diagnostic, and outreach services to uninsured and under-insured women. The breast and cervical cancer project, through its regional agencies, shall first use the contributed funds to pay for services provided directly by personnel of local departments of health, federally qualified health centers as defined by section 3701.047 of the Revised Code, or other community health centers. If contributed funds remain after a regional agency pays for all screening, diagnostic, and outreach services provided by local departments of health, federally qualified health centers, or other community health centers, the regional agency may use contributed funds to pay for services provided by other providers.
