Free Breast and Cervical Screenings

 
Every Woman’s Life (EWL) is a public health program that helps uninsured, low income women gain access to free breast and cervical cancer screening services. Screening and early detection reduces death rates, improves treatment options, and greatly increases survival.  To be eligible, women must be a Virginia resident between the ages of 18-64, meet federal income guidelines and be uninsured.  Women 18-39 must be symptomatic or be determined to be high risk for breast and/or cervical cancer to be eligible.  Services provided by the program include a clinical breast exam, mammogram, pelvic exam, Pap test, and any diagnostics needed to reach a final diagnosis.  If a woman enrolled in EWL is diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer she may be eligible for Medicaid to pay for treatment.
