Breast Cancer

Partners from across the state working in breast cancer have come to a consensus that Nevada’s women should begin discussing breast cancer screening with their health care provider at 40. We’ve curated several provider resources to assist you in having a conversation about screening with your patients, and these patient resources to increase compliance.

Women’s Health Connection

The State of Nevada, through a grant from the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program, provides free clinical breast exams and mammograms for women 40 and older, as well as diagnostic services after an abnormal screening result. Additionally, women that receive a breast cancer diagnosis can be fast-tracked into Medicaid for treatment coverage. The program is open for women who are uninsured or underinsured and meet income guidelines. The program is administered by Access to Healthcare Network. Learn more about the program and how you can become a program provider and enroll patients by visiting Access to Healthcare Network online or call 844-469-4934.

Mammovan – Mammography on the Move

Providers serving patients in rural communities should check the Mammovan schedule to refer patients for screening within their community. The Mammovan provides mobile mammography services throughout the state and accepts most forms of insurance, Women’s Health Connection and Medicaid clients, and offers free or sliding-fee scale mammograms for those women that qualify.
