Free, discounted mammograms offered

Saint John’s Women’s Center, in cooperation with Madison County Imaging, PC, is offering discounted mammograms for $55, beginning Monday and running through Oct. 17. 

The discounted mammogram program includes screening with ImageChecker technology, which digitally analyzes mammograms, reviewing each image and marking any areas that warrant a second look by the radiologist. Appointments must be scheduled by Oct. 17, and mammograms must be completed by Oct. 31.

To receive the $55 mammogram, a coupon must be purchased between Monday and Oct. 17. The coupons may be purchased from two locations:

n Saint John’s Cashier’s office, in the main lobby of Saint John’s Medical Center, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

n Ambulatory Services Center Registration, 2020 Meridian St., Suite 150, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

No insurance will be billed for patients receiving the $55 mammogram from the coupon purchase. The $55 discounted fee includes the hospital charge, radiologist charge, digital mammogram and ImageChecker technology.

The discounted mammograms are available for women age 35 or older, with no breast disease symptoms, no current or previous breast cancer and who have not had a mammogram within the last 12 months.  Mammograms must be physician referred. Follow-up exams that may be recommended as a result of this initial screening are not eligible for the $55 discounted rate. Insurance may be billed for the follow-up exams.

Women who do not qualify for discounted mammograms are encouraged to check with their insurance representative for their policy’s coverage of screening and diagnostic mammograms.

Saint John’s Health System provides free screening mammograms to uninsured women who meet income guidelines through the Marie’s Hope Program year-round. In addition to the financial guidelines, to qualify for a free screening mammogram, a woman must be age 35 or older, with no breast disease symptoms, no current or previous breast cancer and who have not had a mammogram within the last 12 months.
