Well Woman HealthCheck

The Well Woman HealthCheck Program provides free mammography and pap testing to qualifying women in our service area. Free or low cost breast and cervical cancer diagnostic testing is also available.

Well Woman HealthCheck staff strives to make the atmosphere one that is nurturing and empowering for women. Since education plays a vital role, clients are encouraged to be advocates for their own health whenever possible. The Well Woman HealthCheck Program at North Country HealthCare is funded through the Arizona Department of Health Services, with a grant from the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

All appointments and follow-up appointments must be scheduled through the Well Woman HealthCheck Program Staff in order to be paid for by us. Enrollment is completed annually to verify eligibility.

What services are covered through the Well Woman HealthCheck Program?

Screening services include:

  • pap tests
  • clinical breast exams
  • mammography
  • diagnostic tests to rule out breast or cervical cancer in the event of abnormal screening results

If you have additional medical concerns that you want to address with your provider, unrelated to breast or cervical health, a separate appointment needs to be scheduled. Our program is only able to pay for approved services related to breast and cervical cancer. If unrelated laboratory testing is ordered, payment will be the patient’s responsibility.

What happens if I am diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer?

Arizona’s Well Woman HealthCheck Program is a CDC funded National Breast and Cervical Cancer Detection Program and is covered by the Breast and Cervical Cancer Prevention and Treatment Act (2000). Most women who are diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer by our program are provided treatment through the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS). Women who are enrolled in AHCCCS through the Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment Program do not have to have dependent children or meet the standard AHCCCS income guidelines.

BCCTP Eligibility Requirements & Application Process

What if I have High-Deductible Insurance?

Women with high-deductible insurance which does not waive the deductible for preventive screenings, may be screened through our program. If their breast or cervical cancer screening results are abnormal, they must use their insurance to obtain diagnostic services. There may be funding available to assist with the cost of breast diagnostic services if needed.

What if I was already diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer?

If you were diagnosed in the past, but have completed your treatment for breast or cervical cancer, you can still enroll in our program for screening and diagnostic services.

If you are currently undergoing treatment or your treatment is incomplete, we are unable to enroll you in the Well Woman HealthCheck Program.

How can I help the Well Woman HealthCheck Program?

One of the easiest things you can do to support the Well Woman HealthCheck Program is to purchase a Pink Ribbon License Plate. Help provide vital breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic services to uninsured women throughout Arizona by purchasing a specialty Pink Ribbon/Cancer Awareness License Plate. A percentage of the fee for this specialty plate directly supports the Well Woman HealthCheck Program.
