Care For Yourself
The Care for Yourself program helps eligible women receive:
- Annual office visit
- Pap test
- Blood pressure screening
Care For Yourself also pays for some Breast and Cervical diagnostic services.
Qualified health care providers are located throughout the state to provide these services. In most cases, a client is able to see her regular health care provider or a health care provider in her local community.
Women who are diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer through the Breast & Cervical Cancer early Detection Program are referred for treatment coverage provided by the federal “Breast & Cervical Cander Treatment Act” through the Department of Human Services.
