  Our application is now online –

We will call you to schedule an appointment!

The Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (BCCEDP) at the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County provides no-cost breast and cervical cancer screening exams, including mammograms, pap smears, pelvic exams, and clinical breast exams, to women who are 50 to 64 years of age, low income, and uninsured or under-insured.

Call (727) 824-6917 to see if you qualify and we will send you an application, or simply download the application yourself.  Just print it, fill it out completely, and mail it in. 

Once we receive your completed application, we will call you to let you know if you qualify and to make your first appointment.  When you become part of our program, we will schedule and authorize payment for all your appointments for breast and cervical cancer screenings, and other related tests if needed, for one year.

Please note that if you qualify for our program but have received a mammogram anywhere else within the last year, we cannot help you until at least a year has passed since that mammogram.

Early detection is the key to successful diagnosis and treatment
 of breast cancer and cervical cancer.

Screening Guidelines:

  • Women need their first pap test at the age of 21 regardless of sexual activity.
  • Women need a pap test every three to five years after the first test as long as the test results continue to be normal.
  • Women 20 years and over should have their breasts checked once a year by a health care professional.
  • Women over age 40 should have a mammogram once a year.

Contact Information:    (727) 824-6917

Hours of Operation:   Monday Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm

BCCEDP is funded by a grant from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention, through the Florida Department of Health Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program.
