This program provides MO HealthNet coverage for uninsured women under the age of 65 who have been screened through the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) Show Me Healthy Women program, formerly known as the Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Project, and are in need of treatment for breast or cervical cancer. This includes treatment of certain pre-cancerous conditions and early stage cancer.
