PALS Act of 2021
DB-i has joined other women’s health organizations in support of Protecting Access to Lifesaving Screenings (PALS) Act of 2021. The federal bill extends a congressional moratorium, first passed in 2015, on recommendations made by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, that would advise women to begin biennial breast cancer screenings at age 50 instead of annual screenings beginning at age 40. The PALS Act delays these recommendations to protect insurance coverage of annual breast cancer screenings at no cost for women aged 40 and older.
