It’s time to make sure women know there is a vital program for women that pays for mammograms and Pap smears for uninsured women and insured women who can’t afford their co-pays. We have 28.4 million uninsured Americans in US _ some in my own family _ and 31 million more currently under-insured, unable to pay out-of-pocket costs. The numbers are likely to grow. To qualify,
income must fall within 250% of federal poverty level ($29,700 single; $40,500 2-person family).
The program pays for screening and diagnostic mammograms, follow-up breastsurgery biopsies and treatment.
This is a national program. The CDC’s web page has info about where to find a program at: https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/nbccedp/screenings.htm

This state and federally funded program needs to be supported and preserved. And if you can, please share this post widely so others know about this vital program. It’s been here for many years but women surprisingly don’t know about it. #mammography #womenshealth #blackwomen #breastcancer #BreastSurgery
