The North Carolina Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Program (BCCCP) provides free or low-cost breast and cervical
cancer screening and follow-up services to eligible women in North Carolina.
BCCCP services are offered at our Health Department locations in addition to most local health departments in North Carolina, as well as some community health centers.
BCCCP began in 1992. Each year over 12,000 women in North Carolina receive breast and cervical screenings through the program.
The program assists with screening mammogram, follow-up diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound, colposcopy if needed. If cancer is diagnosed there is a special Medicaid that can be applied for.
Women are eligible if they meet all of the following criteria:
- are aged 40-64 for breast services and 18-64 for cervical;
- have a household income at or below 250% of the federal poverty level;
- are uninsured or underinsured; and
- are without Medicare Part B or Medicaid
By appointment only
This is for women with no insurance, Medicare or Medicaid. Eligibility for services is based on income.
