If found early, nearly all breast and cervical cancers can be treated successfully (Cancer in Ohio, 2014). In Ohio, most women have insurance coverage and these screenings are covered at no cost. For women without insurance, there may be programs to help them receive these lifesaving screenings.
The Ohio Department of Health Breast and Cervical Cancer Project (BCCP) can help all women navigate cancer screenings. BCCP’s Patient Navigation Program helps guide women through the healthcare system, find providers and community resources, and answer questions about scheduling appointments, using insurance, and more.
The Ohio BCCP program also offers no-cost breast and cervical cancer screenings and diagnostic testing to qualified participants. This is one of the programs offered by the Patient Navigation Program.
For more information about BCCP or to see if you qualify for no-cost screenings, call 1-844-430-BCCP (2227) and select the corresponding option for your region.
