Appointments are necessary and will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. On-site nurses and technicians will provide mammography, a clinical breast examination and instructions for self-examination. Patients and their physicians will be notified of the exam results.

• The program is open to Nassau County women ages 40 and over.

• Women who are covered by insurance, Medicaid or Medicare will have their carrier billed and must bring their information card to the screening, along with a prescription from their physician. NuHealth policy requires patients to be responsible for any co-pays charged by their carrier.

• Women 40 and older without health insurance may be eligible for the Cancer Screening Grant Program, which covers the cost of screening and follow-up if necessary.
