Breast and Cervical Cancer Care
CFHC offers breast and cervical cancer screenings for low-income women who live in Illinois and are uninsured or underinsured. The Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (IBCCP) aims at detecting breast and other cancers early so that women can receive the best treatment options. IBCCP offers free:
- Breast exams
- Pelvic exams
- Clinical Breast Exams
- Pap tests
- Health education
Even if a woman has already been diagnosed with cancer, she may still be able to receive free treatment if she qualifies. Men may also be eligible for breast health screenings. Women who are newly insured and need to access breast health screenings can enroll in the Clinical Navigation Insured (CNI) program. For questions or to enroll in IBCCP call 773-768-5000, ext. 1060.
You can be confident that you’ll receive more than just the best clinical care, because CFHC’s patients also have access to a closely integrated network of support including Care Coordination, WIC and Healthy Start.
