Insurance Information: “Some insurance companies including Medicare require a year between mammograms or they will deny payment. Some insurance companies do not pay for a screening mammogram every year. It is the patient’s responsibility to contact their insurance company if they have any questions about their insurance payment. If the patient has health insurance, we will file the insurance including Medicare or Medicaid. Self-paying patients will be billed by the hospital and by the radiologist for their exam. No payment is due at the time of service. Patients without insurance who need help paying for their mammogram can inquire about our Mammography Assistance Program by calling (864) 560-6144.”
