  • Show Me Healthy Women provides a qualified woman with free breast and cervical cancer screening at no cost or for a nominal co-payment. 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 of non-cancer related services.
  • In order to be eligible for screening through the Show Me Healthy Women Program, you must be at least 35 years of age. In addition, you must have no or limited health coverage, be ineligible for Medicaid and Medicare, and have an income under 200% of the federal poverty level (FPL).
  • If you are a non-resident or not a U.S. citizen, you may still participate in free breast and cervical cancer screenings in Missouri. However, you may not participate in Missouri’s Medicaid treatment program if cancer treatment is required. All states bordering Missouri will accept referrals from the Show Me Healthy Women program into their Medicaid treatment programs.
  • For more information, please call the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, Bureau of Cancer and Chronic Disease Control, Show Me Healthy Women Program, at (573) 522-2845.
