Mammography Program

Breast cancer is currently the most common cancer globally, and in the United States, 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer during their lifetime. Preventive screenings can result in early detection which can lead to less aggressive treatments and higher survival rates.

Princeton’s mammography screening program for faculty and staff and their eligible dependents 35 and older, is offered in the spring and fall of each year.

This Spring, the Princeton Mammography Program, available to you and your loved ones, will take place from April 17 through May 1. The University has partnered with Princeton Radiology to offer convenient mammogram appointment times, including early mornings, evenings, and Saturdays.

To schedule your mammogram, you will need a prescription from your primary care doctor or gynecologist. If you’ve previously had a mammogram at a different facility, it’s strongly recommended that you provide those results to Princeton Radiology prior to your appointment or bring them with you to your appointment.

On the day of the appointment, you will need to bring your mammogram prescription, medical ID card, driver’s license, and the phone and fax numbers of the doctor(s) who you want to receive your results.

If you or your dependent are enrolled in a Princeton medical plan and use Princeton Radiology or any independent in-network provider/facility, a preventive or 3D mammogram is covered at 100% once per calendar year for those age 35 and over. If you are enrolled in the Aetna J-1 Visa Plan, a mammogram is covered at 80% after the deductible is met. Costs for radiological services vary greatly between hospital-based locations and independent facilities while quality remains comparable. Therefore, consider using an independent in-network radiology facility whenever possible. For assistance locating a primary care doctor or an independent in-network facility, contact Health Advocate at (866) 695-8622 or Castlight at (866) 207-6344.
