KINGMAN– Did you know…so far this year, 77 local women were diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer through our program. When breast cancer is discovered early, most people survive to live full, active lives.

The KRMC “Catch It Early” program offers:

  • “Free” (no out-of-pocket cost) screening mammograms to all women in Mohave County age 40 and over who have not had a screening mammogram in the previous year.
  • Free or reduced-cost breast diagnostic services (e.g., diagnostic mammogram, breast ultrasound, biopsy) for qualified uninsured/underinsured Mohave County residents who have an abnormal screening result.
  • Free breast health navigation services to support patient needs throughout the breast cancer diagnostic and treatment process.

If you are age 40 or older, a resident of Mohave County, and have not had a mammogram within 12 months, you may qualify for a free 3D screening mammogram. You can schedule your mammogram directly and do not need an order from your healthcare provider. Request an appointment.

If approved, we will bill your insurance company and the Catch It Early program will cover any remaining cost. If you do not have insurance, you will be linked to additional programs to cover the full cost of your mammogram and other breast health services. Call 928-692-2727 to schedule your mammogram today!

If you are younger than 40, please talk to your healthcare provider about what screening methods are right for you.

The KRMC “Catch It Early” program relies on grants and community contributions to provide free or reduced-cost breast health services to women in Mohave County. You can donate at: http://www.azkrmc.com/catch-it-early-program/
