WHO SHOULD GET A SCREENING MAMMOGRAM?
A mammogram is recommended as a screening tool for all women over the age of 40 as early detection of abnormal tissue greatly improves treatment outcome. Ensure you know your insurance benefits for a screening mammogram. Typically, this is covered under your Wellness benefits, but some plans have a separate annual mammogram allowance. OceanMed also accepts vouchers from The Breast Cancer Foundation, The Lions Club and The Cayman Islands Cancer Society.
