We provide free diagnostic services for eligible women with abnormal screening results. We provide some free diagnostic services to women who have high-deductible insurance. We provide navigation services to women who have insurance or are covered by Medicaid. Call us. If we cannot help with your expenses, we can refer you to another agency or provider who may be able to help.
The overall goal of the program is to decrease morbidity and mortality from breast and cervical cancer. The State of Illinois has a cancer Treatment Act that will pay for surgical and medical interventions for breast and cervical cancer. Low income, uninsured women in Madison County, regardless of where they were diagnosed with cancer, may be eligible for services under the Treatment Act.
