Frequently Asked Questions about Riverland Medical Center
What does the Riverland Medical Center provide?
They are a participating Center for the Louisiana Breast & Cervical Health Program.
What is the mission of the Louisiana Breast & Cervical Health Program?
To prevent unnecessary disease, disability, and premature death by providing quality breast and cervical cancer screenings at NO COST to uninsured and underinsured, lower-income women in Louisiana.
How to be eligible on their program?
Eligible women are those that meet age, income, and insurance status guidelines. In addition, a woman must not participate in any program that provides these same services, such as Family Planning in a parish health unit. The screening provider determines a patient's eligibility for participation in LBCHP. Contact one of our providers if you are experiencing any breast or cervical symptoms, as this may help you qualify.
What are their eligibility guidelines?
1. Age: Women must be between 21 and 64 years of age to qualify for cervical cancer screenings. For breast cancer screenings, women must be between 40 and 64 years old. A woman who by virtue of symptoms or physical findings, regardless of age, is considered to have a substantial likelihood of having breast disease is to be referred for a diagnostic mammogram. 2. Income: The participant's household income must be at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Level. The Federal Poverty Level and the LBCHP's maximum allowable income are adjusted annually.
