Don’t Forget to Get Your Yearly Mammogram!
Breast cancer screenings, also known as mammograms, can help save lives. If you are over 50 or have certain risk factors, mammograms are the best way to check for breast cancer and find it at an early stage. Finding breast cancer early can help with treatment and improve chances of survival.
Getting Your Mammogram
Louisiana Healthcare Connections members at least 40 years of age can get one mammogram per year at no cost. Plus, members ages 50-74 earn $50 in rewards when they get their mammogram! There are two ways to get your screening:
From Your Provider
Call your doctor to schedule your mammogram. Be sure to talk to your doctor about your family medical history and any other factors that may put you at a higher risk for breast cancer.
If you need help scheduling your mammogram, please call us at 1-866-595-8133 (TTY: 711), Monday through Friday, 7a.m. to 7p.m. We will work with you to make sure you get the care you need. We can also help you find a provider in our network, or you can find one online.
