Mammography screenings are primarily for women age 40 and older; however, screenings will be provided to those younger than 40 that have a screening referral from a provider. The Mammovan now has the capability to do 3D screening. Women are encouraged to check with their insurance company to see if a 3D scan is covered. If it is not covered by insurance, there is a $50 charge for a 3D scan.

 

Early detection is key in the fight against breast cancer, so access to screenings is critically important. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. The goal of Nevada Health Centers’ Mammovan is to make mammography services accessible and convenient for women by visiting locations across Nevada.Screenings are provided to all women regardless of economic status. Payment methods include Medicaid, Medicare, insurance and a sliding fee scale, and some women may be eligible for a no-cost screening.
