Mammograms reduce breast cancer deaths by an average of 15%. New recommendations against routine mammograms for women aged 40-49 have been issued by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force. Other major health care providers, including the American Cancer Society, disagree with the new recommendations.

Tell state insurance regulators not to allow insurance companies to restrict access to mammograms. Sign the petition & tell a friend today!

Dear National Association of Insurance Commissioners
President Roger A. Sevigny,
President-Elect Jane L. Cline,
& association members:

In spite of the recent controversy regarding whether routine mammograms should be given to women aged 40-49, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force and the American Cancer Society, as well as countless other experts, agree that mammograms reduce the rate of death due to breast cancer by an average of fifteen percent.

We, your constituents, ask that you prevent recent USPSTF recommendations from being used to restrict access to mammograms for women. Your decisions and legislation will help decide whether women in each state get to choose the best preventive care options with the help of their doctors, or insurance companies make that choice for them by not covering appropriate care.

Please make your own recommendations wisely. Do not allow insurance companies to restrict access to life-saving mammograms. Let patient and doctor decide what preventive care is appropriate and necessary.

Sincerely,

Petition Signatures

May 14, 2018 Glenda Pearson Insurance can look at it from a cost prospective, if cancer is found early treatment is less expensive verses finding it at a greater stage! The cost of mammograms compared to the cost of chemotherapy and radiation is pennies! why limit testing????

May 12, 2018 Holly Gatica I was diagnosed with breast cancer 2 years ago at the age of 32. If it weren't for feeling the lump myself, the cancer would have spread. The doctors agreed that I was too young to have been sent for a mammogram, and with no family history.
