CHI Memorial offers mammogram screenings
A few minutes could save your life.
CHI Memorial’s mobile health coach will provide mammography screenings at several locations around Chattanooga next week, according to a news release.
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.
Locations will be:
- The Wig Gallery in Brainerd on Saturday, July 21, 2018 from 9:00am – noon
- Go Pink for Her! event at Walmart on Gunbarrel on Saturday, July 21, 2018 from 2:00pm – 5:00pm
- Cherokee Health System in Brainerd on Thursday, July 26, 2018, from 9:00am – noon
- Birchwood Health Center on Monday, July 30, 2018 from 10:00am – 2:00pm
If you do not have insurance, you may qualify for financial assistance. The MaryEllen Locher Breast Center receives grant funds from Avon Breast Cancer Crusade to provide women with education about and access to breast health services.
Partnerships with Tennessee Breast and Cervical Screening Program and the Susan G. Komen Foundation provide eligible uninsured and under-insured women with breast and cervical screenings.
If an abnormality is discovered, the diagnostic workup is covered and a financial plan is provided for any follow-up care.
Women need to know their doctor’s first and last name.
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.
