Changes in Low-Dose Mammography Screening Provisions

On June 1, 2018, Gov. Parson signed HB 1252 into law. This bill amends the insurance code to add digital mammography and breast tomosynthesis to the definition of low-dose mammography screening and requires reimbursement rates to accurately reflect the resource costs including any increased resource cost of breast tomosynthesis. Participants aged 35-39 must be allowed one low-dose mammography screening and participants aged 40 and older must be allowed one annually. The law takes effect Jan. 1, 2019.
