Breast Cancer Screening (All employees)
Regular breast cancer screening is one of the most powerful tools against breast cancer. That’s why mammograms are an important tool in a woman’s health toolbox.
A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast. The purpose is to help detect early signs of breast cancer. Women of average risk for breast cancer should consider getting a mammogram every year beginning at age 40. Talk with your doctor to see if this is right for you.
If you are covered by an Emory medical plan, there is no out-of-pocket cost for a mammogram, which is considered preventive care. It is covered at 100% if in-network providers are used through Tier 1 and 2 for the Aetna HSA and POS plans; out–of-network coverage will be subject to plan provisions after satisfying the deductible. A mammogram is also covered at 100% if you have the Kaiser Permanente Plan.
