This year, more than 5,000 Wisconsin women will find out they have breast cancer.
The disease has a high survival rate, as long as you detect it early.
The Good News: Regardless of whether you have insurance or which kind of insurance you have, the Wisconsin Well Woman Program makes sure every woman can get screened for breast cancer.
It pays for:
- Clinical Breast Exams
- Diagnostic Testing (when initial results are abnormal)
- HPV exams
- Pap tests
- Pelvic exams
… which means you don’t have to pay a co-pay, deductible, or premium, as long as you use a medical provider in the program.
Who is Eligible:
- Woman between ages 45 and 64
- Women without health insurance
- Women with insurance that doesn’t include routine check-ups and screenings
- Women who aren’t able to afford their deductibles or co-pays
- Women who meet income requirements (at or below 250% of the federal poverty level)
The program is available to women in all 72 counties and 11 tribes, but not every provider offers every service.
