Cancer Screening Program

Georgia Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (BCCP), formerly known as the BreasTest and More Program, is a statewide breast and cervical cancer early detection program that is offered by health department clinics to low income, uninsured women. Funds are allocated to districts to reimburse providers at a reduced rate for the services they provide.

Screening Services:

  • Clinical breast examinations
  • Mammograms, if 40 or older
  • Pelvic examinations
  • Pap smears

Diagnostic Follow-up Services:
Women detected with abnormal screening results are referred to participating health care providers for diagnostic and treatment services. Diagnostic services and case management may be provided at no or low cost to eligible women. The goal is that every woman who has an abnormal screening result be referred for and receive the follow-up she needs. If treatment is necessary, low-income women who are eligible may receive treatment services through the Women’s Health Medicaid Program.

Eligibility:

  • Women forty years and older may be eligible for clinical breast and pelvic examinations, Pap tests, mammograms, and diagnostic evaluations, if needed
  • Income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level
  • Uninsured or underinsured and not eligible for Medicaid or Medicare
  • One year or more since last mammogram and/or Pap smear, and/or have symptoms suspicious of breast or cervical cancer

  • Women between the ages of 35 and 39 who have symptoms suspicious of breast cancer may be eligible for diagnostic evaluation if funding permits
  • Eligible Women less than 40 years of age who have abnormal Pap results may be eligible for diagnostic evaluation services
