Central Maine Healthcare wants everyone in our communities to be healthy and have access to quality health services. That’s why we’ve partnered with the Maine Breast and Cervical Health Program (MBCHP) to ensure that you have access to our care, no matter your life circumstances. We’re here for you and want you to feel supported through all your lifespan phases.
What is the MBCHP?
Every woman should get a breast exam once they get to the age of 40. Some people just can’t afford to pay for the exam or their insurance doesn’t cover it fully. That’s why the Maine Breast and Cervical Health Program (MBCHP) was created. This service is free for women ages 40 and older if they meet certain qualifying conditions.
These conditions include:
- You have no insurance
- Your insurance does not cover mammograms or pap smear tests
- You have a high insurance deductible
- You meet set income limits
What the Service Includes
If you qualify for a free exam that is covered by the MBCHP, there are certain restrictions on what is included in the free service.
The MBCHP pays for:
- Mammograms (breast x-ray)
- Breast Exams
- Pap Tests
- Pelvic Exams
- Limited Diagnostic or Follow-up Services
