Mammography

The Connecticut General Assembly (our State Senators and Representatives) passed a bill that expanded coverage for mammograms.

According to the Connecticut General Statutes, Section 38a-530, each group health insurance policy providing coverage issued, renewed, amended or continued in this state on or after October 1, 2001, shall provide benefits for mammography examinations to any woman covered under the policy which are at least equal to the following minimum requirements:

  • A baseline mammogram for any woman who is thirty-five to thirty-nine (35-39) years of age, inclusive; and
  • A mammogram every year for any woman who is forty (40) years of age or older.
