Ingham County Health Department (ICHD) serves as a Local Coordinating Agency (LCA) for the Michigan Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Navigation Program (BC3NP). This program is part of a nationwide effort to decrease breast and cervical cancer lost of life by offering free breast and cervical screening services, follow-up care, medical referral and cancer treatment to low income women. By way of ICHD services are available to women living in Clinton, Gratiot, Ingham, Ionia, Jackson, Livingston, and Washtenaw counties.
Services available through the program:
Women age 21-64 can receive screening services such as:
- Pap test, HPV test (ages 21-64)
- Screening mammograms (ages 40-64)
- MRIs - based on client personal and family risk
If a breast or cervical abnormality is identified from the screening, the woman will be referred to community providers for follow-up. Over 75 diagnostic services are provided free of cost through the BC3NP. Some of these include:
- Diagnostic mammograms
- Breast Biopsy
- Colposcopy services
- Colposcopy-directed biopsy services
- Medical Consultations
In the event of a diagnosis of breast or cervical cancer through the BC3NP, a woman may be eligible for Medicaid coverage. If eligible, Medicaid will pay for all of her medical expenses for as long as she is being treated for the cancer.
Not all breast lumps are cancerous. However, don't guess with your health, let's work together and get you screened. Yearly mammograms saves lives! Early detection, Saves lives!
