Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (BCCP)

Georgia Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (GBCCP) Overview

For over 20 years, CDC's National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) has provided funding to all 50 states, the District of Columbia, 11 American Indian/Alaska Native tribes and 5 U.S. Territories to provide screening services for breast and cervical cancer.

To help reduce the impact of cancer on the lives of Georgians, the GBCCP strives to address 2020 Healthy People National Objectives by providing access to timely breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic services to eligible women. Women diagnosed with cancer through the program are eligible for treatment through Medicaid coverage as authorized by the Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment and Prevention Act passed by Congress in 2000.

The GBCCP is for eligible women residing in Georgia aged 21 to 64 years for cervical cancer screening and aged 40 to 64 years for breast cancer screening.  The program serves women who are uninsured and those with a low annual income (not greater than 200% of the federal poverty level) with a focus on never/rarely screened women and those aged 50 to 64.

Services provided by the Georgia Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (BCCP) include:

  • Breast and cervical cancer treatment.

  • Full coverage Medicaid that includes the full range of services (not only cancer treatment).
