North Carolina Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Program (NC BCCCP)
The NC BCCCP provides free or low-cost breast and cervical cancer screenings and follow-up to eligible women in North Carolina. Services are offered at most local health departments and some community health centers, hospitals and private physician offices.
Services offered include clinical breast exams, screening mammograms, pap tests, diagnostic procedures (diagnostic mammograms, ultrasounds, colposcopies, breast and cervical biopsies) and medical consultations. Breast and Cervical Cancer Medicaid (BCCM) provides funding for treatment to NC BCCCP enrolled clients who are diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer who meet additional requirements. BCCM eligible women must be enrolled in NC BCCCP prior to a cancer diagnosis.
As of May 2014, NC BCCCP is offered at no cost. For the latest cost details, please contact the NC BCCCP directly.
