MENOMINEE — Appointments are now available from the Public Health, Delta and Menominee Counties to women in need of screening services Dec. 6. Screenings include: Breast exam and mammogram; pelvic exam and pap test; blood pressure screening and cholesterol and glucose screening (WISEWOMAN clients only).
Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Navigation Program (BCCCNP) screening services are free. A woman must be between 40 to 64 years, meet income guidelines and have no health insurance or be underinsured. BCCCNP may also help with breast and cervical follow-up care that may be needed if a woman with insurance has high out-of-pocket costs that her insurance does not cover.
WISEWOMAN services are offered to women receiving BCCCNP services. WISEWOMAN helps women reduce their risk for many chronic diseases, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and high blood sugar.
Public Health’s Women’s Health Clinic also offers yearly breast and pelvic exams, and a woman’s insurance or Medicaid will be billed. For appointments and to determine eligibility, persons may call the Public Health Department, 906-863-4451.
