The All Women Count! Program serves women without insurance and those who have insurance but cannot pay the deductible or co-payment for cancer screening exams. The program covers women 30-64 years of age for Pap smears and mammograms for women age 40-64 years of age. Mammograms are also available for women age 30-39 but does require pre-authorization through a health care provider. The program pays providers directly.
