With busy work, family and volunteer schedules, making an annual screening mammography appointment may not be high on your to-do list. But Deaconess is making it easier for you to access high-quality mammography services when and where you need them.
As the only mobile breast center in southern Indiana to offer 3D mammography, Deaconess Mobile Breast Center provides this service to women in the places where they work, live and socialize. This service is designed to ensure all women have access to an annual screening mammogram, regardless of your ability to pay or travel to a breast imaging center.
Annual screenings are covered as a preventive screening under most insurance plans. For your convenience, we will file a claim with your insurance provider on your behalf.
If you do not have insurance and cannot afford to pay for a mammogram, you can still receive a screening – thanks to dedicated grants and other fundraising efforts.
It is recommended that annual screening mammograms for women begin when they turn 40, and every year after. By performing most mammograms in 15 minutes or less, we make it easy to fit this life-saving test into your busy day.
If you’re not a current Deaconess patient, don’t worry. We can easily take care of transferring records of your past mammograms to our office.
