Find a 3D Mammography Center.
Governor Tom Wolf made Pennsylvania the first state in the nation to require insurance coverage of 3D screening mammograms for women insured under PA law. 3D mammograms offer better detection and fewer false alarms. Find a center near you.
The PA Breast Cancer Coalition is a great resource to support a breast cancer patient and their families. If you or someone you know is having difficulty accessing medical services, or has questions about insurance coverage related to breast cancer, they are here to help.
