St. Vincent hospitals offer discounted mammograms in May

ANDERSON, Ind. — St. Vincent Mercy Hospital, The Women’s Center at St. Vincent Anderson Regional Hospital and Northwest Radiology Network are offering $55 discounted mammograms. Participants must schedule their mammograms by May 31. To schedule a mammogram at the discounted price, participants can call 552-4941 or 646-8284 before May 31 and mention the $55 promotion.

Individuals also can purchase $55 mammogram certificates at both ministries. Certificates may be purchased at:

• Registration Desk at St. Vincent Mercy Hospital, any time.

• The Cashier’s Office, in the main lobby of St. Vincent Anderson Regional Hospital, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

• Erskine Medical Office Building Center Registration, 2020 Meridian Street, Suite 150, Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m.

No insurance will be billed for patients receiving the $55 mammogram from this special promotion.

The $55 discounted fee includes one screening mammogram with the radiologist’s interpretation and computer aided detection. St. Vincent Anderson Regional Hospital and St. Vincent Mercy Hospital offer digital mammography, which allows the highest image quality at the lowest dose of radiation.

The discounted mammograms are available for women age 40 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.

St. Vincent Anderson Regional Hospital 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 40 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.

Marie’s Hope was established in 2001 to provide important women’s health screenings to women without insurance who meet income guidelines.  Services include clinical breast exam, and PAP smear. The program honors Sister Marie Bush, CSC, a former hospital vice president. To find out more about the program criteria, call 646-8532.
