MRH’s B.C.U.P.S. Program has Expanded

1BCUPS logo website
Are you a woman over the age of 40, or do you have a family history of breast cancer, but don’t meet the age criteria for screening? If you answered “yes” to either one of those questions, Marlette Regional Hospital recommends that you consult with your primary care provider about scheduling an annual digital mammogram screening through the B.C.U.P.S. program.

The B.C.U.P.S. program at Marlette Regional Hospital has provided free mammogram screenings to hundreds of women over the past 9 years, primarily for those that are uninsured, but has recently expanded as a result of preventive services covered under the Affordable Care Act.

Patients that do not have health insurance coverage or those who are underinsured (limitations with coverage, large out-of-pocket deductible, younger than age criteria for screening, etc.) may qualify for full or partial financial assistance through the expanded B.C.U.P.S. program. The extent of financial assistance is based upon patients’ annual household income, and a MRH representative will work with patients to assist them through the application process when scheduling.

In addition to an annual digital mammogram screening, B.C.U.P.S. can help cover the cost associated with a diagnostic mammogram, breast ultrasound, or an ultrasound-guided breast biopsy, if recommended by their primary care provider. These testing services are performed at the Gordon and Gayle Miller Foundation Women’s Imaging Center at Marlette Regional Hospital.

Don’t let financial constraints, lack of health insurance, or a high deductible prevent you from having this life-saving screening. For more information about the B.C.U.P.S. program, please call 989-635-4000
