No Prescription or Referral Required for Annual Mammogram

At the Benefit Funds, we support the care you provide our 1199SEIU members by reminding them to stay current with their annual preventive screenings, including mammograms for women between ages 40 and 80. As you know, the procedure is a vital tool in helping to detect cancer at an early stage, when it is most treatable, leading to less aggressive treatment and higher rates of survival. To help ensure our members’ access to this potentially lifesaving procedure, we remind you that your 1199SEIU patients do not need a prescription or referral to schedule a mammogram. They simply need to provide their radiologist with the name and contact information of their primary care physician who will receive the test results.

If you have any questions, please call our Provider Hotline at (646) 473-7160.
