Tens of thousands of women die each year from breast or cervical cancer. While screening and early detection -- followed by treatment -- can improve survival, low-income, uninsured women are often not screened. In 1990, Congress authorized the CDC to fund screening and diagnostic services for such women. An Act signed into law in 2000 allowed states to extend Medicaid eligibility to women screened under the Early Detection Program (EDP) and who need breast or cervical cancer treatment.

Historically, the vast majority of Vet. Admin. (VA) patients have been men, but that is changing. VA provided health care to over 281,000 women veterans (WV) in 2008 -- an increase of about 12% since 2006. WV seeking care at VA medical facilities need access to a full range of health care services, incl. basic and specialized gender-specific services -- such as cervical cancer screening and treatment of reproductive cancers. This testimony discusses: (1) the on-site availability of health care services for WV at VA facilities; (2) the extent to which VA facilities are following VA policies tha
