The Utah Cancer Control Program (UCCP) provides free to low cost clinical breast exams and mammograms to women who meet age
and income guidelines. Eligible women with abnormal screening exams are offered diagnostic evaluation by participating providers.
In addition, the UCCP provides education about the need for early detection and the availability of screening services, performs
outreach to eligible women, uses an annual reminder system, collects outcome data, and disseminates information about breast
cancer. As of July 1, 2001, the UCCP is able to refer Utah women in need of treatment for breast and cervical cancers and
precancerous lesions for full Medicaid benefits. The women must meet all requirements as outlined in the National Breast and
Cervical Cancer Treatment Act.
