The Wisconsin Well Woman Program (WWWP) provides preventive health screening services to women with little or no health insurance coverage. WWWP pays for mammograms and Pap tests. The program is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Health and Family Services, Division of Public Health.
To qualify for the WWWP you must meet the three requirements below:
Covered services are available from participating health care providers at no cost to WWWP clients. There is no premium, co-payment or deductible for the Well Woman's Program. Not all covered services are available from every provider.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you are a woman age 45-64 (or if symptomatic, age 35-44) and are uninsured or have an insurance plan with a high deductible, or that doesn't cover screening services, WWWP may be able to help.
