Mammography Program

Statistically, one in eight women is at risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer. Preventive screenings can result in early detection, which is key for a favorable outcome against this disease. 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.

2022 Spring Mammography Screening Program for Age 35 & Over

This year, the Princeton Spring Mammography Screening Program is taking place from May 23 through June 3, 2022. Princeton Radiology has reserved appointment slots for Princeton faculty and staff, including evening and Saturday appointments, at these locations:

To schedule your mammogram, you will need a prescription from your primary care doctor or gynecologist. If this is the first time you are having the screening done at Princeton Radiology their staff will assist you in obtaining prior test results.  

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

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

In the event you are faced with a cancer diagnosis, reliable information and comprehensive care are crucial. The experts at Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) will evaluate and confirm your diagnosis and treatment plan if needed. For more information, visit MSK Direct or call (844) 303-2123.
