New U.S. State Law & More
The state of Ohio has a new law which requires (1) updated and more comprehensive density “inform” notification to patients and, (2) new expanded insurance coverage for breast imaging (both effective 9/23/2022). Please visit our MAP or TABLE for more information.
Original research just published in the Journal of Breast Imaging, Breast Density Legislation Impact on Breast Cancer Screening and Risk Assessment. The findings show that breast imaging facilities in states with breast density inform laws often offer supplemental screening compared to facilities in states without “inform” laws. Further, a statistically significant proportion of facilities in non-inform states had no supplemental screening nor plans for implementation.
