translated from Spanish: Fucam will no longer care for free breast cancer; doesn’t make a deal with Insabi

The Breast Cancer Foundation (Fucam) will stop providing free care because it failed to reach an agreement with the federal government, following the cancellation of Popular Insurance.
Through a statement, Fucam reported that despite «the commitment of our attempts, as well as our results and the experience that supports us», they failed to reach an agreement with the Institute of Health for Welfare (Insabi), so they will not be able to continue to provide comprehensive care to breast cancer patients.

On 8 January, it was disclosed that the medical services provided by insabi are free only at the first and second level of care.
