Pennsylvania Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program

AccessMatters administers the Pennsylvania Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (PA-BCCEDP) in Southeastern Pennsylvania. The Program provides free breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic services, as well as referrals to treatment when needed. AccessMatters contracts with 17 health care organizations that serve nearly 5,000 individuals through the PA-BCCEDP annually.

To be eligible for the PA-BCCEDP, individuals must be Pennsylvania residents who are uninsured or underinsured (with limited coverage or cost-prohibitive deductibles), have low or moderate-income, and have breasts and/or a cervix. Cervical cancer screening is available to people age 21 years and older, and breast cancer screening is available to people age 40 years and older and to people between the ages of 21 and 39 years who are at high risk for developing breast cancer. Diagnostic care for breast and cervical cancer is available to people age 18 years and older.

For more information about the PA-BCCEDP or to be connected to a participating healthcare organization, please call AccessMatters’ Information Hotline at 215-985-3300 or text the phrase “ScreeningMatters” to 66746

The PA-BCCEDP is a Pennsylvania Department of Health program and is made possible, in part, by funding from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
