Description

The program helps low-income, uninsured, and underinsured women gain access to breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic services, including: clinical breast exams, mammograms, pap tests, and pelvic exams. Diagnostic testing is such as ultrasounds, biopsies, other tests are also available, if screening results are abnormal. Referrals are made for treatment as necessary.
In addition, the Well Woman HealthCheck Program helps verify the eligibility and facilitate the enrollment of uninsured women in Arizona diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer or precancerous cervical lesions into the Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment Program (BCCTP) provided by the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS).

To qualify for the Well Woman HealthCheck Program, you must:

  • Not have Medicare Part B
  • Not be enrolled in the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), which is Arizona's Medicaid program.
  • For breast cancer screening, be 40 - 64 years old (or any age 21 and over if you have symptoms, such as pain, a lump, nipple discharge, an inverted nipple, etc.) and not recently diagnosed with breast cancer
  • For cervical cancer screening, be 21 - 64 years old and not recently diagnosed with cervical cancer
  • Not exceed the household income guidelines described below.

Under-insured is defined as:

  • Having health insurance that does not cover cancer screening or diagnostic services.
  • Being a Medicare beneficiary and not having Part B.
  • Having health insurance that does not provide coverage for breast or cervical cancer screening.
  • Having health insurance with an annual deductible, monthly spend down, or co-payment that is high enough to prevent you from obtaining cancer screening services. (High deductible as determined by the WWHP. Please contact the WWHP for additional information.)

    I am 57, newly diagnosed with Ductal Carcinoma breast Cancer, I am currently without insurance. I was recently awarded Disability for my Mental Health. My monthly income puts me above the income range for ACCHS. I was at an appointment this week being treated for a UTI, paying out of pocket. My Primary suggested I contact you to ask for help navigating through this process.
