They are a participating provider for The Well Woman HealthCheck Program (WWHP), for free mammograms.

What does Well Woman HealthCheck Program (WWHP) offer?
They help 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. They also help 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).

What are their Eligibility Guidelines for Free Services?
Must be a woman. Must be a resident of Arizona. Must be uninsured or underinsured (have insurance that does not cover the services offered by the WWHP or have a co-pay of $100 or more for breast and cervical cancer screening and/or diagnostic services). Must not have Medicare Part B. Must 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. Must not exceed the household income guidelines.

It increases the chance to detect the disease early when it is most likely to be curable.
