CHI Memorial to offer mammography screenings

Posted: Updated:

CHI Memorial’s mobile health coach will provide mammography screenings at CHI Memorial Family Practice Associates in Trenton, Georgia, on Friday, January 8, 2016 from 9:00am - 4:00pm.
 
All women should have one screening mammogram between the ages of 35-40. After age 40, a screening mammogram is recommended every year.  Any woman who meets these age guidelines and has not had a mammogram in the past 12 months may participate, with or without insurance.
 
For those with insurance, you must bring your insurance card and a photo ID, such as a driver’s license. Insurance will be filed for you.  If you do not have insurance, you may qualify for financial assistance. The MaryEllen Locher Breast Center receives grants and partners with Tennessee Breast and Cervical Screening Program to provide eligible uninsured and under-insured women with breast and cervical screenings.  

If an abnormality is discovered, the diagnostic work up is covered.
 
Women will need to know their doctor’s first and last name.
 
To schedule a screening, call 706-657-4183.
 
CHI Memorial Family Practice Associates is located at 12978 North Main Street, Trenton, GA 30752.
