McDonough District Hospital Mammography Assistance Program

  • Category: News
  • Posted On:

McDonough District Hospital offers a Mammography Assistance Program (MAP) for anyone seeking financial assistance for breast screening. Eligibility guidelines are based on family size and income. MDH Patient Financial Services determines eligibility. If eligible, financial assistance will be granted for 100% of the cost of the mammography exam at MDH.

Working cooperatively with the McDonough County Health Department (MCHD), MDH has structured MAP to compliment, but not duplicate, the Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (IBCCP) and Susan G. Komen funding, which are both administered through our local health department. MAP provides a bridge to a gap in mammography funding for those who have a financial need.

The MDH Mammography Assistance Program has been designed to assist patients of any age. MAP will also provide funding for additional diagnostic testing such as ultrasound, sonogram, and/or unilateral mammogram if ordered by a physician.

MAP funds are a valuable resource for patients not covered by the Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program. The Mammography Assistance Program is made possible by generous community donations, which were designated for funding breast screenings at MDH.

Annual mammogram screenings provide early detection of cancer, which can save a life. Do not let a lack of financial resource prevent anyone from receiving this life-saving exam. Please share this information with family and friends, and let us help!

For more information or to apply for MAP, contact MDH Patient Financial Services at (309) 836-1528.
