We believe in supporting a patient’s health through preventative screenings. The Women’s Wellness Connection (WWC) is a program offered at SJBPH that provides well woman exams including free breast and cervical cancer screenings, diagnostic testing, and health navigation for women who are uninsured, underinsured, or low-income. This service is available regardless of documentation status. Everyone should have access to healthcare with prevention and early detection of breast and cervical cancer allowing them to live healthy and prosperous lives.
For those who do not qualify for the Women’s Wellness Connection program, SJBPH also accepts private insurance including Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Healthcare, Cigna, Rock Mountain Health Plans, UMR, and Medicaid. Your health insurance should cover preventative screenings at 100%, meaning: no cost for you.
