Changes in Low-Dose Mammography Screenings Provisions

On May 1, 2018, Gov. Fallin signed SB 1103 into law. This bill amends the insurance code to require that plans cover low-dose mammography screenings to test for the presence of occult breast cancer. Participants aged 35-39 must be allowed one low-dose mammography screening every five years and participants aged 40 and older must be allowed one annually. These screenings cannot be subject to plan deductibles, copayments or coinsurance, and the plan can’t require participants to undergo the screenings at a specified time as a condition of payment. The law takes effect on Nov. 1, 2018.
