Our mission is to prevent unnecessary disease, disability, and premature death by providing quality breast and cervical cancer screenings at no cost to uninsured and underinsured, lower income women in Louisiana. Special emphasis is given to reaching women who rarely or never receive screening services. Rarely screened is defined as not having been screened within the last three years for breast cancer and within the last five years for cervical cancer.
The following breast and cervical screening services
are provided to eligible participants:
• Clinical breast exam
• Pelvic exam
• Pap test
• Other diagnostic tests
The LBCHP does not provide treatment services.
Providers can enroll women diagnosed with cancer in Medicaid, if they qualify.
