Breast & Cervical Cancer Project

If found early, nearly all breast and cervical cancers can be treated successfully. In Ohio, most women have insurance coverage and these screenings are covered at no costs (pending current legislative decisions). For women without insurance, there may be programs to help them receive these lifesaving screenings.


The Ohio Department of Health Breast and Cervical Cancer Project (BCCP) can help all women navigate cancer screenings. BCCP’s Patient Navigation Program helps guide women through the healthcare system, find providers and community resources, and answer questions about scheduling appointments, using insurance, and more.

The Ohio BCCP Program also offers no-cost breast and cervical cancer screenings and diagnostic testing to qualified participants. This is one of the programs offered by the Patient Navigation Program.
