Coverage for Tomosynthesis

On May 21, 2018, Gov. Inslee signed SB 5912 into law, creating Chapter 115. This law requires certain individual and fully insured group health insurance policies to cover mammograms provided by breast tomosynthesis under the same terms and conditions currently allowed for mammography. Breast tomosynthesis is a 3D mammographic method. This law also prohibits the application of a deductible and cost sharing.

This law is effective June 7, 2018.
