Early detection is the best defense against breast and cervical cancer.
At Women’s Health, you can learn more about your risks and get screened for breast and cervical cancer by an experienced health care provider. Just make an appointment for an Annual Exam or Cancer Screen and make sure you’re not at risk.
Women’s Wellness Connection (WWC)
For those who qualify, WWC will pay for cervical cancer screenings for women age 21-64. If any cervical abnormalities are detected on your Pap smear, WWC will also pay for further diagnostic tests. WWC also covers the cost of a clinical breast exam and annual mammogram for women 40-64. If any breast abnormalities are found, WWC will cover the cost of additional breast diagnostic tests or breast-related follow-up visits. If breast or cervical cancer is diagnosed, those who qualify for WWC may also qualify for BCCP (Breast and Cervical Cancer Program) Medicaid that will cover treatment costs.
Do I qualify?
Individuals can receive free services through the WWC program if they meet the following requirements:
- Live in Colorado.
- Are a legal resident of the United States.
- Are 21-64 for cervical cancer screening; 40–64 years old for breast cancer screening.
- Have limited or no health insurance to pay for these screenings.
- Meet income requirements. See WWC qualification guidelines for details.
What if I don’t qualify for WWC?
Patients who are uninsured and/or low income may qualify for free or discounted breast cancer screenings through our Breast Health Program. To find out if you qualify and what services are covered, call our Patient Advocate at 303-440-9320 x 30 (Boulder) or 303-774-8671 x 12 (Longmont) for details.
What services are not covered?
During an exam at Women’s Health, if a patient needs lab work, medications, birth control supplies or other services not related to breast or cervical cancer screening, they will be responsible for payment for these services, but will be charged based on income on our sliding fee scale.
