The bullets below explain the preventive care services listed in the charts above. If you have more questions, please contact your PCP. You can also speak to one of our nurses by calling CareSource24.
Breast Cancer Screen: Women between the ages of 50 to 75 should get a mammogram, an x-ray of your breasts, at least once every two years.
Lung Cancer Screen: Between ages 55 and 80, ask your doctor about tests for lung cancer if you have at least a 30 pack per year past and either still smoke or quit within the last 15 years.
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Screen: Those men who are between the ages of 65 and 75 who have smoked should get screened for abdominal aortic aneurysms.
Bone Density Exam: If you are over the age of 65, you should get at least one bone density exam, a test to measure the strength of your bones. If you are between 50 and 65, talk with your doctor to see if you need a bone density test, especially if you have had a broken bone.
