"If you currently have medical insurance, please bring a medical provider’s note that you are due for an exam, along with your insurance card," Jess Staub, media contact for the event noted. "If you do not have insurance or you do have insurance with high co-pays and high deductibles, you may be eligible for The HealthyWoman Program.

"Eligibility may also be determined when you schedule a mammogram or when you arrive on-site."
