CindyA Posted March 21, 2014 Share Posted March 21, 2014 The following was submitted by Addison GIlbert Hospital: Beverly Hospital and Beverly Radiology Associates are offering a free low-dose chest CT screening to individuals who meet the established National Comprehensive Cancer Network's (NCCN) high-risk criteria. Persons between the ages of 50 and 74 who have smoked at least an average of one pack of cigarettes per day for twenty-years, may meet the criteria. To learn if you meet the criteria, an initial assessment is required and may be taken by calling 1-855-CT- CHEST. While private insurers and the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) do not currently cover low-dose CT lung screenings, and most hospitals charge a self-pay of at least $350. for this screening, Beverly Hospital is determined to help bring awareness and accessibility of this testing to all people at high-risk at no charge. The screening does not obligate those who participate to return to a Beverly Hospital facility for any further screenings, for further evaluation of any findings or any other services that Beverly Hospital provides. http://www.boston.com/yourtown/news/bev ... ening.html Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
