- The Arkansas BreastCare Program provides a qualified woman with full health care benefits through Medicaid at no cost or for a nominal copayment. Women screened through this program and diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer may be eligible for free health coverage through Medicaid which extends throughout the duration of treatment. In addition, Medicaid will cover all of your medical needs including treatment for non-cancer related medical services.
- In order to be eligible for screening through the BreastCare Program, you must live in Arkansas and be at least 40 years of age. In addition, to qualify for cancer screening services, which includes a Pap test, you must meet income eligibility requirements, be uninsured or underinsured, and be ineligible for Medicaid and/or Medicare.
