The mobile van does not require a doctor’s prescription but your insurance may. Please contact your insurance company if you are unsure of their requirements. IMPORTANT: if you are under the age of 39, you must have a doctor’s order. Please note: if you have a situation that is being monitored, have had breast implants or reduction, the mobile unit will not do a screening. You will need to schedule a screening at a medical facility. Please keep in touch with your doctor for follow-up screenings.
If you have not had a Pap or mammogram screening in the past year, now is the time to schedule it in one convenient location. You may have one screening or both screenings.
