Scheduling an annual mammogram is easy with Community Mercy Health Partners’ Mobile Mammography program, which provides screening at multiple locations in Champaign and Clark counties each month.
The American Cancer Society recommends that women have a mammogram every year starting at age 40. A doctor order is not needed for screening. Mammograms are covered by most health insurance plans. Check with your insurance provider for exact coverage. No-cost screenings are available for those who qualify. When registering, ask about financial assistance options. Walk-ins are welcome but not guaranteed. Be sure to have a photo ID and insurance card. Appointments are approximately 15 minutes when people pre-register.
The following location visits are scheduled in March. To schedule a 3D or 2D mammogram or for more information about these dates or availability at Springfield Regional Medical Center, call 937-523-9332 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
