Did you know that with 3D Technology:

• Up to 40% more cancers found, with 40% fewer callbacks and 40% fewer biopsies

• Eliminates tissue overlap so that hidden things are found more easily and fewer 'false' findings occur

• Same technology as 2D mammograms, so patient and tech experience during the exam is virtually the same as for 2D mammogram studies

So, schedule your mammogram closer to home! The exam should be covered by most insurance plans including Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance. To be certain, please contact your insurance company at the customer service number provided on your insurance card

• To expedite your call – Provide your insurance company with the following information: “Do I have coverage for a Screening Mammogram under Wellness or Preventative Care?”

o CPT CODE G0202-Screening Mammogram

o The exam you wish to verify coverage is a 3D Tomosynthesis Mammogram*

CPT CODES: G0202/77063

* If the 2D method is preferred by the patient, please let the technician know

• Uninsured women will normally be covered through a grant from the Komen Foundation. No cost for the exam if you qualify. Call 303-318-3419 to verify if you qualify for this program.
