Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening

The Montana Cancer Screening Program pays for breast and cervical cancer screenings for people who qualify based on age, income, and insurance status. Screening services include clinical breast exams, mammograms, and Pap tests. Diagnostic testing is provided for the follow-up of abnormal screening tests. We partner with local providers, which means that you can see whoever you want, and it will be just like a regular appointment.

Our staff is available to guide you through the screening process, even if you do not qualify based on age, income, and insurance status.

To enroll, please fill out the enrollment form, and either mail it or drop it off at the following address:
