Breast & Cervical Cancer Screening Program
South Dakota women have help to cover the cost of breast and cervical cancer screening. Mammograms, Pap smears and related exams are available at no cost to eligible women at many doctors' offices, mammography units, family planning and other health clinics.
The All Women Count! Program serves women 30-64 years of age for Pap smears, 40-64 for mammograms, without insurance to pay for screening exams, and who have insurance but cannot pay the deductible or co-payment. Mammograms for women ages 30-39 require preauthorization through their healthcare provider. The program pays providers directly.
The All Women Count! Program hosted an informational webinar on Wednesday, December 13, 2023. Here is the presentation and video for your review.

Early Detection Saves Lives
Women are more likely to live when breast and cervical cancer are found early. All women are at risk for having breast cancer and the risk gets higher as we age. Mammograms can find breast lumps up to two years before they can be felt. Finding breast cancer early often means less surgery and a better chance to get well. Signs of cervical cancer may not show up until the disease is far along. The pap smear finds cervical cancer before you know you have it. Found early, cervical cancer is nearly 100% curable.
