Cigna to Reimburse 3-D Mammography

Aug. 29, 2016

Cigna announced it will now reimburse for three-dimensional mammography for routine breast cancer screening, effective immediately.

Under its previous policy, the company covered 3-D mammography for diagnostic purposes, but not for routine screening.

The policy was revised following evidence from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, which determined that 3-D mammography is clinically superior to traditional mammography for breast cancer screening.  — Tamra Sami
