  • Diagnostic testing, including biopsy and ultrasound (if needed)
Who can receive the services?

Women are eligible for screening and diagnostic services if they meet the following:

  • Have no insurance
  • Are 40 years of age or older for Pap tests, pelvic exams and clinical breast exams

What if I am diagnosed with cancer through BCCP?
