This service is available to full-time employees, retirees and eligible dependents, covered by ICC’s health insurance plan. The cost of the screening will be covered under the wellness portion of the health plan.
***The same as last year: part-time employees, retirees or dependents who have health insurance other than the ICC Health Plan are still eligible for the on-campus screening. You must show proof of insurance in the form of a copy of your insurance card. Methodist will then directly bill the standard mammogram rate to your respective health insurance plan. You are then responsible for any non-covered amount.
To be eligible for the on-campus screening, your last mammogram must have been taken 1 year prior to the scheduling dates. Please have the name and address of the physician to whom you want the results sent when you call.
Special Note: Methodist follows the recommendations of the American Cancer Society regarding mammograms. The current recommendation is for women to start with a baseline screening mammogram at the age of 40 and then have yearly screening mammograms after that. The exception would be for women with a strongly positive family history of breast cancer. Women in this category should consult with their physician regarding when yearly mammograms should begin. Methodist will not perform mammograms for women under 40 without a written order and authorization from a physician.
For questions or to schedule your appointment, please call Health Services at Ext.5475 or 5481.
