Breast & Cervical Health Check at KBFPC

The Alaska Breast and Cervical Health Check (BCHC) program provides breast and cervical cancer screening to women ages 21 to 64. Women are eligible for BCHC if they meet income age and guidelines. Eligible women who do not have insurance—or whose insurance does not cover BCHC service—qualify for no-cost annual well-woman health checks, clinical breast exams, cervical cancer screening and mammograms. BCHC also covers the cost of diagnostic tests for cervical and breast cancer.  If a woman is screened and diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer through the Alaska Breast and Cervical Health Check program, she may be eligible to have treatment paid for by Medicaid. Please contact KBFPC for more information.
