This year, 30% of females diagnosed with cancer for the first time will hear the news that they have breast cancer. This cancer claims the lives of 42,000 women and 500 men in the U.S. annually. Breast cancer begins without symptoms, so providers rely heavily on screenings for early detection to ensure the best treatments for their patients as soon as possible.
But those are all statistics – numbers don’t feel real even though with breast cancer’s prevalence it could very well impact you or someone you know. When it comes to cancer, it can be easy to think that it won't happen if you don't worry about it, making it even more tempting to put off screening services.
We want to make getting imaging done as easy as possible because you deserve to have peace of mind. Now, with your Nomi Health benefit, you can get potentially lifesaving imaging services without the burden of financial stress.
There are many types of imaging included in your benefit, even services outside of cancer screenings. Below you will find the national average cost on non-insured prices without Nomi Health. Here's a quick rundown:
MRI National Average: $1,000-5,000+
CT Scan National Average: $50-1,000+
ULTRASOUND National Average: $200
PET Scan National Average: $2,000-20,000+
X-Ray National Average: $100-1,000+
With your Nomi Health benefit all your imaging needs cost you absolutely nothing. That means that mammograms, MRI, CT scan, ultrasound, PET scan, X-ray all add up to $0 for you.
If you are on a high deductible plan, you can still save significantly on your out-of-pocket expenses. Once you hit the federal payment threshold or $1,500 individual plans/$3,000 family plans, your imaging services are also free. Please note that all mammograms are free, even before you meet your deductible so, please don’t wait to schedule your screening.
We understand the importance of early detection and proactive health measures, especially when it comes to breast health, to increase the chances of successful treatment and a full recovery. By getting screened regularly, women can identify any abnormalities in their breast tissue at an early, more manageable stage.
That's why we offer zero-cost imaging services for:
Screening Mammography: An integral part of routine breast care, designed to detect breast cancer in its early stages, improving the chances of successful treatment. Women aged 40-49 should discuss with their healthcare provider whether to start mammograms. Women aged 50 and older should have mammograms every 1-2 years. High-risk individuals may require earlier or more frequent screenings.
Breast Tomosynthesis: This advanced technology provides a detailed and comprehensive 3D mammography image of your breast compared to a standard mammogram. The result? Enhanced accuracy and clarity in detecting abnormalities, ensuring a more thorough assessment of your breast health.
We also highly recommend that you continue with your clinical and self-breast exams between screenings. If you have a family history of breast cancer, genetic testing and counseling may be advisable to assess your risk and determine appropriate screening strategies. Please consult with your doctor about your personal health and the services best suited for you.
