Women across the country now have access to screening mammography without out-of-pocket costs. However, as many as 10 percent will need follow-up imaging that could require patients to pay hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars. The difference in coverage is even more stark for those with a history of breast cancer, who often utilize diagnostic imaging as their standard of care for screening. Please join Susan G. Komen to learn about the uses of diagnostic imaging, the impact of out-of-costs on patients and potential solutions for eliminating barriers to breast cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment.
