Senator Jack M. Martins (R-7th Senate District), in conjunction with NuHealth, is sponsoring a breast cancer screening program on Thursday, November 5th from 10 am to 1 pm at the Floral Park Library (17 Caroline Place, Floral Park).
Appointments are necessary and will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. On site nurses and technicians will provide a mammography, a clinical breast examination and instructions for self examination. Patients and their physicians will be notified of the exam results.
NuHealth’s guidelines for the program are as follows:
The program is open to Nassau County women age 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.
Women wishing to make an appointment for a breast cancer screening should call Senator Martins’ office at 516-746-5924.
