Health Care System Factors for Breast Cancer Deaths

Health Care System Factors

According to data collected by the Utah Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, use of mammography is lower among women without health insurance compared to women with health insurance. Screening mammography is a free preventive service mandated by the Affordable Care Act. The American Cancer Society currently recommends that women get a mammogram every year starting at age 45 (screening may be recommended earlier or more frequently depending on family cancer history).
