Now Covered for Preventive and Diagnostic Screenings
Effective May 1, 2018, Dean Health Plan covers breast tomosynthesis for all members on employer and individual insurance policies. Breast tomosynthesis, also known as 3D mammography, is now covered for both preventive and diagnostic screenings.
Our coverage update is in response to the National Comprehensive Cancer Network’s (NCCN) evidence-based assessment of breast tomosynthesis. The NCCN recently updated its Breast Cancer Screening and Diagnosis Guidelines to include breast tomosynthesis as an alternative to traditional mammography.
Members should consult with their care provider to determine which mammography option is right for their needs.
