Frequently Asked Questions
Who is able to receive a mammogram on the TriHealth Mobile Mammography Van?
Screening mammography on the mobile van is available for women 40 and over with no recent breast complications (lumps, masses, nipple discharge, etc.) Women 35-39 who are considered high-risk can be screened with insurance approval.
Do I need to have my prior images/films from another hospital?
If your previous mammography images are coming from another health system, our team will request the images prior to your visit. If images have not been received by the date of your mammography, your results could be delayed.
Do I need to have a health care provider in order to have a mammogram on the TriHealth Mobile Mammography Van?
Yes, when scheduling a mammogram on the van, each patient is required to provide the name of the physician, nurse practitioner or nurse midwife she would like a copy of her report sent to.
What is the cost for a mammogram on the TriHealth Mobile Mammography Van?
Your insurance provider will be billed for the mammogram. In rare occasions where a company requires co-pay for mammograms, the company does have the option to cover the cost of the co-pay for all patients if it chooses to. For patients without insurance, funding is available for those who qualify. For more information about qualifying for a no cost mammogram, call 513 569 6565.
How and when do I receive the results from my screening?
A copy of your report will be sent to the health care provider you designate during scheduling. A letter with your results will be mailed to your home within 30 days. If additional views are required, you will be contacted within 24 to 48 hours by a staff member at one of our Breast Centers.
