Billing and Insurance
We accept most health insurance carriers. If you don't have insurance
and are unable to pay the cost of service, contact the
Worcester County Breast and Cervical Cancer Program. This program provides education about reducing the risks of breast and
cervical cancer. They also provide screening and follow-up for women aged
40 to 64 years who lack insurance coverage. For more information call
Atlantic General Hospital also has
several options to assist if you have a bill or a balance that you cannot afford.
If You Are Medicare Eligible
The Balanced Budget Act of 1997 expanded the Medicare coverage of screening
mammograms from once every other year to once a year. Medicare pays 80%
of the approved amount for a screening mammogram and the patient pays
the remaining 20%.
Most insurance covers mammography. If you have a co-pay or a deductible,
it will be due at the time of service. If you pay your bill at the time
of discharge, you will be granted a 2 percent discount. If you pay within
30 days of receiving your bill, you may take a 1 percent discount.
