Free Mammogram Program
Winneshiek County Celebration of Life, a local non-profit organization, raises funds throughout the year to provide mammogram screenings free of charge to area women in need.
Winneshiek Medical Center actively participates in this program and offers mammogram screening days three times every year.
Women who are uninsured or underinsured can qualify for a free screening at Winneshiek Medical Center. The application is a simple one-page form that is based on insurance deductibles, income, and number of persons in the household to name a few. For instance, a woman may qualify if she’s in a household of four, with an income of $66,000 or less annually, or an insurance deductible of $5,000 or more.
