If it's time for your mammogram, but getting it taken care of through
the week is just too much hassle, here's an opportunity to get your
mammogram done on a Saturday!
King’s Daughters Mobile Mammography Unit will visit at Sam’s
Club, 432 Walmart Way, in South Point, Ohio, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday,
Sept. 9. Screening mammography does not require a physician order and
is covered by most insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid, under
the requirements of the Affordable Care Act.
Appointments are required; to schedule, please call King’s Daughters
Centralized Scheduling at (606) 408-2742 or toll free 1-877-304-1935.
The American Cancer Society recommends women age 40 and older have a screening
mammogram each year. Testing is performed by specially trained mammography
technologists using digital equipment, which results in less radiation exposure.
If you do not have health insurance, King’s Daughters can help you
identify coverage for which you may be eligible, including grant funding
from the Susan G. Komen foundation. Please call (606) 408-9266 for assistance.
