MyHealth360 plan members can complete the following screenings without a copay:
Mammography for Breast Cancer
Breast cancer is the leading cause of premature death in American women. Mammography screenings can detect early breast cancer when it can be cured and may be scheduled without a doctor’s order. Women age 40 and older with an average risk of breast cancer should undergo an annual screening.
Colonoscopy for Colon Cancer
Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S. Early detection lowers the risk of dying from this common disease, and colonoscopy is the best way to detect an early—and curable—abnormality before it becomes a cancer. A colonoscopy is recommended every 10 years beginning at age 50 (or earlier for those with a family history).
Low-dose CT for Lung Cancer
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths, exceeding breast, colon and prostate cancer deaths combined. Smoking is a known risk factor. A CT scan of the lungs can identify lung cancer at an early, curable stage. CT scans are recommended for those ages 55 to 74 who quit smoking, have a 30-pack/year history of smoking or who quit smoking within the last 15 years (and meet the age and smoking history criteria).
PSA for Prostate Cancer
Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer in men, and it’s the number two cause of cancer deaths in men. The Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test can detect the presence of prostate cancer. Screenings are recommended every two years beginning at age 50-55, or at age 45 for African-American men and those with a family history of prostate cancer. Family history includes a father, brother or son with prostate cancer diagnosed before age 65.
