No-cost screening for breast cancer in North Merrick
Nassau County Legis. David Denenberg (D-Merrick) and NuHealth-Nassau Health Care Corporation will co-sponsor a no-cost breast cancer screening event Wednesday at the North Merrick Library, 1691 Meadowbrook Rd., from 8:45 a.m. to noon.
The program is open to all Nassau women ages 40 and older. Women covered by insurance, Medicaid or Medicare will have their carrier billed, and must bring their information card and a prescription from their doctor to the screening. Patients will be responsible for any co-pays charged by their carrier. Women ages 40 and older without health insurance will not pay any out-of-pocket costs.
Patients will be required to show ID at the time of the mammogram. Patients who had a mammography through Nassau Health Care Corporation must bring their prior films to their appointment.
Appointments are necessary and are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Call Denenberg’s office at 516-571-6219.
