Providing Comprehensive Integrated Care, One Patient at a Time

Insurance Coverage of 3D Mammography

3D Mammography is covered by Medicare and Medi-Cal. However, some private insurance payors are denying payment of this exam by stating that it is “experimental” or “investigational”. While we are not passing that cost along to the patient, we are encouraging anyone who has received a denial to file an Independent Medical Review (IMR) online or call our billing department for assistance.

CENTER OF EXCELLENCE

What is a “Center of Excellence?”

Our new facility is one of only six Certified Quality Breast Centers of Excellence in California (the highest certification level) by the National Quality Measures for Breast CentersThis is in addition to being accredited by the American College of Radiology in Mammography and Stereotactic Breast Biopsy, and our compliance with the FDA through the Mammography Quality Standards Act. 

But what do these accreditations mean to you, the patient?

It guarantees that all our physicians (radiologists) are board-certified and have particular expertise in breast imaging — they are not just people who wander in once a week or month. These physicians have undergone special training and/or fellowships in women’s imaging, because they have a genuine interest in this area of study.  Just as important, our technologists must undergo special training as well. Together our staff makes up a team of specialists that are truly committed to “excellence” in the field.

It means that exams other than mammography are also held to accreditation standards. No matter what exam or procedure you need done, you can rest assured it will be done by highly qualified staff, in a first-class facility.
