Available Services for Cervical Cancer Screening (Pap)
The Utah Cancer Control Program (UCCP) provides vouchers for free Pap tests and pelvic exams to women who meet age and income guidelines. Eligible women with abnormal screening exams are offered diagnostic evaluation by participating providers. As of July 1, 2001, the UCCP is able to refer Utah women in need of treatment for cervical cancers and precancerous lesions to Medicaid for full benefits. The women must meet all requirements as outlined in the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment Act. Visit [http://www.cancerutah.org] for more information to see if you qualify. In addition, the Utah Immunization Vaccines for Children (VFC) program provides low cost HPV vaccines to females ages 9 to 18 who meet income guidelines.
