Mammogram Appointments

Make an Appointment

To schedule a screening mammogram, call 425-688-5700.

The Breast Health Center at Overlake is FDA-approved, accredited by the American College of Radiology and accepts Medicare Insurance.

Insurance Coverage

The American Cancer Society recommends a screening mammogram annually starting at age 40. Since January 1998, Medicare has covered screening mammograms once every 12 months. Please understand that these recommendations may not necessarily be reflected in the reimbursement guidelines from your insurance company. If you are concerned about your coverage, we suggest you call your carrier before scheduling an appointment.

Getting Results

After your mammogram is performed, a radiologist reviews your films. In addition, your films are analyzed by the Intelligent Computer-aided Detection system (ICAD), which is similar to having a "second set of eyes" review your mammogram. Studies show that this process will lead to the detection of 5 to 15 percent more cancers.

Your Bill

Mammograms involve both professional and technical fees. Please understand that you (or your insurance company) will get two bills: one from the Breast Center for the procedure itself and one from the physicians who read the films.

Early detection saves lives. Please talk to your physician about when you should have a baseline or screening mammogram. Read more about the ACS screening guidelines.
