Women who have either no insurance or high deductibles* for wellness services now have an affordable option for mammograms, the most recognized method for detecting breast cancer at its earliest, most treatable stage.
*Please note, if you have insurance and choose not to file for a screening mammogram, you will be ineligible for insurance coverage should you need further testing, such as additional views or a diagnostic mammogram.
The Center for Breast Health now offers screening mammograms for a flat fee of $180, payable by cash only. The price includes the radiologist's fee. Insurance is not filed for this program.
The Center for Breast Health services include state-of-the-art digital technology; same day results when previous films are available at time of appointment; an all-female staff; private, comfortable setting; and soft, full length robes to use during the screening.
Women whose insurance will cover the $180 fee can file the claims themselves.
To schedule a screening mammogram at Baptist, call the Center for Breast Health at 601-973-3180. A physician's order is required. Women who need a physician can obtain a free physician referral from the Baptist Health Line at 601-948-6262 or 1-800-948-6262.
Women who need financial assistance with breast care services at Baptist may be helped by fund for the girls. Contact your Baptist physician, and visit www.fundforthegirls.com for more information.
