- If you believe you may or be at risk for breast or cervical cancer, you may be eligible for free screening and/or treatment through one of two programs administered through the Maryland Breast and Cervical Cancer Health Program.
- The Maryland Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program provides qualified women with breast and cervical cancer screenings at no cost. Women screened through this program and diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer will be eligible for free treatment through Medicaid.
In order to be eligible for screening through this program, you must be between the ages 40-64 years of age. In addition, you must be either uninsured or underinsured and your income must not be greater than 250% of poverty. Women over 65 may be eligible if they do not have Medicare Part B and meet this income standard.
- The Breast and Cervical Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment Program provides eligible residents of any age with free diagnosis and treatment for breast and cervical cancer. In order to be eligible for this program you must meet certain income criteria and be uninsured or underinsured.
- A specific application is required for both of these programs. To find out if you are eligible for either of these programs call the Maryland Cancer Hotlines at 1-800-477-9774.
