While there is no known cure for advanced breast cancer, early detection is a proven line of defense against this deadly disease, and provides a greater chance of cure and more treatment options. An annual mammogram can detect cancer early - when it is most treatable.
We know it can be difficult to find the time to schedule an exam. That's why we offer Mobile Onsite Mammography screenings for our employees. MOM provides high quality services using the latest technology; they also accommodate implant patients.
Maricopa County medical plans cover the cost of a preventive mammogram for women as early as age 40, every one to two years, or at any age for women at risk, when recommended by a physician.The medical plans now cover 3-D Mammograms for breast cancer screening. This technology allows screening of breast tissue from different angles to create a 3-D image.
Like the 2-D mammograms, 3-D mammograms are covered at zero cost share if they are part of your in-network preventive care. Check with your healthcare provider to determine which type of mammogram (2-D or 3-D) is best for you.
