Ongoing TRINITY  Breast and Cervical Cancer Grant Program

Many women without health insurance are not aware that this service exists and that they have the opportunity to receive breast and cervical cancer screenings. The Trinity Breast and Cervical Program is part of the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program. The money for this program is funded by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and also the state of Ohio. They are reaching out to women who have not been able to get their annual screenings done because they cannot afford it.  Pap Tests, Pelvic Exams, and Clinical Breast Exams are offered to women 40 years of age and over, and also mammograms for women 50 years of age and over who are uninsured and have an income at or below 200% of the federal poverty level. To set up an appointment, women can call Trinity BCCP at 1-800-921-5151. Trinity will complete an application and help them to choose a provider close to their home. Once enrolled the women are scheduled for their screenings and an appointment letter is mailed to them that they in turn take to their appointment. The letter tells the provider that Trinity BCCP should be billed for the approved visit. Qualified women do not have to pay up front and will not receive a bill for approved services by Trinity BCCP. For a limited time Trinity BCCP will give each woman who completes her screening services a $20 gift card. (According to Barb Steitz, Program Manager at Trinity BCCP, the program began in 1994 and has funded over 118,000 pap tests, 131,000 clinical breast exams and 109,000 mammograms for eligible women.)
