The Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (BCCEDP) at the Florida Department of Health in Orange County provides no-cost or low cost exams including:
- Clinical breast exams
- Pap smears and pelvic exams
- Follow up care for abnormal results
Call (407) 858-1421 to see if you qualify and we will send you an enrollment application and the annual application agreement. Just print them, fill out both forms completely, and mail them in and/or drop it off at the front desk at the address below.
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.
- 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.
