Kentucky Women’s Cancer Screening – Program Overview
Public health has a unique opportunity to educate women on the benefits of early detection of breast and cervical cancer with self-breast examination, clinical breast examination, screening mammograms and pelvic examination with Pap Test screening. Early detection of breast and cervical cancer with a corresponding decrease in mortality is dependent on periodic rescreening.
A woman may be eligible for low cost breast and cervical cancer screening through the Kentucky Women’s Cancer Screening Program (KWCSP) if she meets the following requirements: 21 to 64 years of age, household income less than 250% of the current annual federal poverty guideline and has no third party payer source (no Medicare, no Medicaid and no private health insurance).
