The Novant Health mobile mammography unit is a 38-ft. multi-functional coach that offers cutting-edge screening mammography services out in the community. The purpose of the program is to greatly increase access to mammography screening for women throughout the community.

Features:

  • 2D and 3D digital mammography technology
  • All-female technologists
  • Check-in and registration area
  • Private changing room with separate clinical exam room
  • Privacy and comfort of a traditional screening center with the convenience of a fully functioning mobile unit

Mammograms are covered as preventive screening under most insurance plans. For your convenience, clinic staff will file a claim with your insurance provider on your behalf. 

Wake Forest's BCBSNC medical plan provides coverage, at no charge, for one baseline mammogram for any female member between the ages of 35 and 39. Beginning at age 40, one screening mammogram will be covered per female member per the calendar year.

 

Note: Limited scholarships are available to assist employees with no medical insurance. If you fall into this category, please contact Ashley Hawkins Parham, at 336-758-5691. The service is designed to ensure all women have access to high-quality breast health services, regardless of your ability to pay or travel to a full-service imaging center.

Note: All forms must be completed to participate. Completed forms are due April 2.
