Breast and cervical cancer affects thousands of women each year across the United States with greater impact on those with limited access to care. Early detection and treatment of breast and cervical cancer through screening reduces mortality rates and greatly improves cancer patients’ survival. The goal of the West Virginia Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program (BCCSP) is to decrease cancer incidence, morbidity, and mortality by focusing on populations who are underserved and who have increased cancer risk due to health inequities.
PRIORITY POPULATIONS & ELIGIBILITY
The BCCSP-eligible population includes those who are uninsured or underinsured, at or below 250% of the federal poverty level, aged 40 to 64 years for breast cancer services, and aged 21-64 years for cervical cancer services. Those who are symptomatic or high-risk under the age of 40 years and those over the age of 64 who do not have Medicare Part B may also receive services through the program.
Underinsured people have out-of-pocket cost sharing required by their health insurance plans that they cannot afford. This is often a barrier to getting appropriate testing. These persons may be eligible for support from BCCSP to cover their out-of-pocket expenses.
Those who are diagnosed with cancer through this program may be eligible for treatment through Medicaid coverage as authorized by the Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment and Prevention Act passed by Congress in 2000.
