Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in the U.S., and early detection is a proven line of defense against this deadly disease.
Benefits-eligible University of Arizona employees, and spouses covered by their medical insurance, can receive a quick and confidential breast cancer screening each year through the Mobile On-site Mammography (MOM) service.
The screening is free for employees on state insurance plans. A copay may apply with other forms of coverage.
This session includes a full-field, 3D digital mammogram with computer-aided detection. People with breast implants are welcome. Patients under age 35 must have a doctor’s referral, and MOM is unable to screen people who are pregnant or nursing, unless referred by a physician.
On the day of the exam: Please bring your insurance card, your primary care doctor’s name and office address, and, if applicable, the name of the facility where you had your last mammogram. Remember: do not wear deodorant, powder, perfume, or lotion, and consider wearing a two-piece outfit. Please wear a face covering and observe physical distancing guidelines. MOM staff will follow appropriate Center for Disease Control (CDC) COVID-19 prevention protocols, and your temperature will be checked before your appointment.
(This screening is worth up to 100 Health Impact Program points!)
