Uninsured

The Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (IBCCP)

Breast and cervical cancer screenings are free to all uninsured women in Illinois. Very low cost treatment is available to most women through this program. This program was expanded in 2007. Now more women than ever before can take advantage of the free screenings and very low cost treatment. Even if you have already been diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer, you may receive very low cost treatment if you qualify.

You may be able to receive free screenings if you are a woman:
• Living in Illinois
• Without insurance
• Over 35 (younger women with symptoms are also eligible)
 
To qualify for very low cost treatment you must be:
• Diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer
• Living in Illinois
