Important information for healthcare professionals:
Maine’s primary care providers are encouraged to continue referring women to MBCHP for screening and follow-up services for abnormal screening results. It is important to remember that even with the changes in health insurance laws and coverage, MBCHP is available to assist eligible women to gain access to needed breast and/or cervical cancer screening and follow-up services. Timely follow-up to abnormal screening results is critical to the early detection and treatment of cancer and pre-cancerous lesions.
Uninsured women diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer or undergoing treatment for breast or cervical cancer may qualify for MaineCare [Maine Medicaid Program] under the Maine Treatment Act. Call the MBCHP Case Manager/Patient Navigator to determine if your patient qualifies for treatment coverage [1-800-350-5180, Press 1 and ask for the Case Manager].

During this past October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Maine Staffing Group invited their flaggers in Maine and New Hampshire to participate in a Pink Hard Hat fundraising campaign. All proceeds from the campaign were matched by Project Flagging and were donated to the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition in Sharon’s name. All flaggers received a pink hard hat to wear for the month of October to show their support.
Maine Breast Cancer Coalition is grateful for the generosity of Maine Staffing Group and all of the flaggers who took part in the Project Flagging Pink Hard Hat campaign. Our hearts go out to Sharon Burns’s family and friends. We are honored to accept the $5,000 donation to our Support Service Fund in Sharon's name.
