The Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program in DuPage County provides free basic services for eligible, uninsured women in Illinois. Free basic services include the clinical breast exam, mammogram, pelvic exam, and pap test.
Diagnostic mammograms and breast ultrasounds are sometimes ordered to clarify medical and/or X-ray findings. These are covered by the Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program. The medical provider may order some tests that are not covered by the program, and you may be responsible for payment for some diagnostic exams. A list of allowable services is available upon request (contact the Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program). The nurse or case manager will help you find resources in these situations.
The medical provider's office will inform you of what should happen next. You may be asked to see a gynecologist. All of the Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program medical providers use the official American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) guidelines for following up on abnormal pap tests.
Call the Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program as soon as possible and send the bill to us. Do not wait for a second or third bill. We will follow up with the provider as soon as we have the bill from you. If there is an error, it may take some time to resolve, but we assure you the bill will be paid properly. This only applies to charges for the Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program, not charges from other medical services you receive.
