Access to Care
Need help finding affordable women's health care, such as mammograms? Or, are you new to the area and need help locating a medical provider?
In Humboldt County, we are fortunate to have access to a couple of different funding programs offering free women's health services to people who are age 40 and older, under or uninsured and below 200% of the Federal Povery Level. See the offering these services through the State of California's "Every Woman Counts" Program as well as Family PACT.
For Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment financial resources, please see the State of California's "Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment Program", which is also part of its "Every Women Counts" program. This is a special program set up specifically to assist income-eligible women in California to get needed breast cancer treatment through the Medi-Cal program.
In Humboldt County, Mad River Community Hospital administers a grant from the National Breast Cancer Foundation that offers free mammograms (screening and diagnostic) as well as breast ultrasounds for women age 40 and older, who are income-eligible and under- or uninsured.
