PA's free Healthy Woman Program

PA's free Healthy Woman Program

Susan Yoder, a breast cancer survivor, is thankful for the Healthy Woman Program at Lancaster General Health. She had no insurance, so had no way to pay for a mammogram or cancer treatment. But, the Healthy Woman Program covers the cost of mammograms, Pap tests and cancer treatment for women who are uninsured or underinsured in Pennsylvania.

Susan calls Ethel Wander, her nurse with the Healthy Woman Program, her angel, because her breast cancer was caught early at Stage 1. The HealthyWoman Program (HWP) is a free breast and cervical cancer early detection program of the Pennsylvania Department of Health. 

healthy_woman_breast_examIf eligible, the free services include:

  • Clinical breast examination
  • Mammogram
  • Pelvic examination
  • Pap smear
  • Education on breast self-exam
  • Follow-up diagnostic care for an abnormal result  

How do I know if I'm eligible? Call 1-800-215-7494.  

What happens if cancer is detected?

If breast or cervical cancer is detected through the HWP, you will be able to receive free treatment through the Department of Public Welfare’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Preventionand Treatment Program.

I'm really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you
ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?
A handful of my blog readers have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer
but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any solutions to help
fix this issue?

I do agree with all the concepts you have offered for your post.
They are very convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are
very short for novices. Could you please extend them a bit from next
time? Thanks for the post.

I'm a developer and I've just thought of a revolutionary online social network internet page.
I'm just trying to find beta testers to search and
give it a go. Do you wish to opt in? We are going to compensate you.
