Breast Cancer Screening & Treatment

Even with Medicaid Expansion and the Affordable Care Act, it is estimated that more than 100,000 women will still qualify for the Well Woman Healthcheck Program. Current levels of funding allow for about 10% of the expected eligible population to enter the program. This life-saving program typically sends about 130 women annually to AHCCCS for treatment. The new improved “community referral” option enacted in 2012 and supported by ACS CAN has now sent 315 women to AHCCCS for treatment since  the policy change.
