Utah Cancer Control Program A Unified Cancer Prevention Approach

Cancer Treatment

If you have been diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer, you may be eligible for treatment referral through the Utah Cancer Control Program. For more information, contact us at 1-800-717-1811.

You may be eligible for Medicaid treatment under the:
Breast and Cervical Prevention and Treatment Act (BCCPTA)

States can choose to provide Medicaid coverage to certain groups of women who are in need of treatment for breast and cervical cancer. Women are screened through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program.

In order for a woman to be eligible for Medicaid under this option, she must:

  • Have been screened for and found to have breast or cervical cancer, including precancerous conditions, through the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP)
  • Be determined to need treatment for breast or cervical cancer;
  • Be under age 65; and
  • Be uninsured and otherwise not eligible for Medicaid.

 

Patients diagnosed with colorectal cancer through the Utah Cancer Control Program will receive help coordinating free or low-cost treatment.

 

Call 1-800-717-1811 to see if you qualify for free or low cost screening exams.
