Clinical breast exams, mammograms and pap tests are extremely important. Every Woman’s Life provides these services to women who qualify. Screening services are free if you can answer “yes” to ALL of the following:
- Are between 40-64 years of age
- Are a U.S. citizen with residence in Virginia
- Have no insurance, or cannot afford to pay your insurance deductible, or your insurance does not cover screening exams
- Your yearly income falls within defined federal guidelines.
In addition to care for women between the ages of 40-64, Every Woman’s Life can enroll women between the ages of 18-39 with abnormal Pap tests or breast lumps.
Women with abnormal findings receive patient navigation services from a registered nurse. Most of the diagnostic studies related to abnormal findings are also free. Women who are diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer are assisted with application to Medicaid for payment of their treatment.
