Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program

The New Mexico Department of Health Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection (BCC) Program is dedicated to improving access to high-quality breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic services for individuals who are underserved. The program supports increasing public awareness through education about prevention, disease processes, and the importance of making informed decisions about the benefits and risks of cancer screening. Additional information: The BCC Program provides age-appropriate accepted standard-of-care breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic services statewide. You may be eligible to get these services if you have a low income; have little or no insurance; and are a woman (including one who is a transgender woman), a transgender man, a gender non-binary person or an intersex person).

Established in 1991, the program has provided services to more than 155,000 individuals:

  • 190,476 mammograms
  • 251,430 pap tests

We are currently in the process of obtaining a new toll-free number and transitioning to a new hotline service provider. Our hope is that the gap in time during this change will be as short as possible.
