Free Mammogram Screenings
Through a partnership with Kohler Oil & Propane Co., a charter donor to the Marlette Regional Hospital Be A Star fund, and thanks to individuals and groups that make annual charitable contributions, free digital mammogram screenings are available at Marlette Regional Hospital for patients that qualify through a program entitled B.C.U.P.S. Digital mammograms are a fast and effective method for early detection of breast cancer.
Who Qualifies for This Program?
Patients that do not have health insurance coverage or those who are underinsured (limitations with coverage, large out-of-pocket deductible, etc.) may qualify for this program.
What Does This Program Cover?
The B.C.U.P.S. program is in place to financially assist patients in acquiring important screening mammograms. The program covers digital mammogram screenings, and for those patients that need further testing that meet eligibility criteria for our Financial Assistance program, B.C.U.P.S. will also help cover a diagnostic mammogram, breast ultrasound, and an ultrasound-guided breast biopsy, if recommended.
Where Are These Screenings Performed?
Screening mammograms provided through the B.C.U.P.S. program are performed at the Marlette Regional Hospital Gordon and Gayle Miller Foundation Women’s Imaging Center.
