Breast Cancer Screening Legislation

Breast Cancer Screening Legislation

As of January 1, 2017 New York State is taking the most aggressive action in the nation to improve access to breast cancer screening with a new law requiring health insurance to cover all screening and diagnostic imaging exams for the detection of breast cancer.

The Law:

  • Includes supplemental imaging for women with dense breast issue.
  • The first law in the country requiring insurance companies to cover all of the costs of supplemental imaging to encourage women with dense breasts to seek additional screenings.
  • Eliminating these insurance barriers will prevent women from paying out-of-pocket for breast cancer screening, including imaging for the detection of breast cancer, diagnostic mammograms, breast ultrasounds, or magnetic resonance imaging.

*In 2013, New York was the first state to adopt a dense breast notification law to inform patients in clear, unambiguous language if their mammogram showed high fibroglandular densities.
