Women have unique health needs, and are often the primary healthcare decision makers for their families. RMHP is committed to helping women stay healthy and active by offering information regarding important health screenings.
Breast Cancer Screening and Awareness
Breast Cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women today, and studies by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that the key to surviving breast cancer is early detection and treatment. Our member outreach program offers information on the prevention and detection of breast cancer, risk factors, preventive health guidelines, and more.
Cervical Cancer Screening and Awareness
Cervical cancer usually develops slowly over time. Thanks to widespread screening with the Pap test (Pap smear), the number of deaths due to cervical cancer has been decreasing since 1950. However, the chance of deaths from cervical cancer increases with age. Getting regular check ups and preventive screenings are the most important things you can do for yourself.
Colorectal Cancer Screening and Awareness
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer - but it doesn't have to be. If everyone ages 50 years or older has regular screening tests, at lease 60 percent of deaths from this cancer could be avoided.
Getting tested is the most important step you can take to help prevent colon cancer. With Rocky Mountain Health Plans, this preventive screening is covered, often in full. Please call your doctor to schedule your colon cancer test today.
