Mammograms and Pap Testing for Uninsured and Underinsured Women

Every year, too many women die of cervical and breast cancer. The earlier the cancer is detected, the greater the chance of survival. However, some women without insurance are not able to receive the screening tests necessary to make sure they are healthy, so cancer can sometimes go undetected. 

Premier Community Health (PCH) offers free mammograms, payment of co-pays for mammograms and other breast health services for eligible women.

Appointments are required, and can be made by calling PCH at (937) 227-9444 or toll-free at (866) 838-8973.
