If you are a woman living in Indiana, and have financial difficulty in getting the breast and cervical healthcare you need, the Indiana Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (BCCP) may be able to help you.

Female Indiana residents who are uninsured or underinsured may qualify for free breast and cervical cancer screenings and diagnostic tests (if needed after abnormal screening results) through the BCCP. Eligibility is determined by age and gross income in relation to family size.

Women ages

  • 40-49 can qualify for a free office visit and Pap test
  • 50-64 can qualify for a free office visit, Pap test, and mammogram
  • 65 and older can qualify for a free office visit, Pap test, and mammogram only if not enrolled in Medicare B 

To qualify, a woman must earn a a gross income (income before taxes) at or below 200% (or twice that) of the Federal Poverty Level, according to household size.

 Household Size  Monthly Income  Annual Income
 1  $1,945  $23,340
 2  $2,622  $31,460
 3  $3,298  $39,580
 4  $3,975  $47,700
 5  $4,652  $55,820
 6  $5,328  $63,940
 For each additional family member, add  $677  $8,120

For women already diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer outside of the BCCP, qualification for Indiana MA-12 (Medicaid) is available. Women ages 18-64 are eligible for MA-12. The income eligibility requirements for this program, called Option 3, are the same as those listed above. If MA-12 enrollment is granted, it will remain active throughout the duration of cancer treatment and will terminate upon treatment completion.

To verify eligibility for free screenings, contact your regional coordinator. If you are interested in applying for MA-12 (Medicaid), please contact the Indiana Family Helpline. Regional divisions, coordinator contact information, and the Family Helpline number can be found on the "Contact the BCCP" page.
