Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (BCCP)

Program Overview

For more than 20 years, CDC’s National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) has provided free or low-cost mammograms and Pap tests to women with limited annual income and little or no health insurance. The NBCCEDP funds 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.

In an effort to reduce the impact of cancer on the lives of Georgians, the Georgia Breast and Cervical Program (BCCP) strives to address 2020 Healthy People National Objectives by providing access to timely breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic services to eligibile women. Services continue until all cancer treatment is completed. 

The Georgia BCCP provide services to women with limited annual income and health insurance (underinsured), as well as uninsured women between the ages of 40-64 for breast cancer and 21-64 for cervical cancer. Priority is given to never or rarely screened women, those aged 50-64 whose annual income does not exceed 200% of the federal poverty level (FPL).

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.
