05:30 PM -- HB16-1381



Senator Todd presented House Bill 16-1381 to the committee. Current law requires that health insurance plans provide coverage for one mammography screening per year as part of the mandatory coverage requirement for preventative health services. This bill modifies this screening requirement to specify that one screening per year must be provided using the breast imaging modality appropriate for each individual's health needs as determined by the person's physician or radiologist. The bill defines "breast cancer screening" as an any noninvasive imaging modality, or combination of modalities, as recommended by the American College of Radiology and considered as an acceptable standard of care for the early detection of breast cancer. Breast cancer screening under this standard may include a clinical exam or follow-up imaging, as recommended by the American College of Radiology, in the event of an incomplete screening result.
