The new guidance also requires health insurers to eliminate annual deductibles, co-payments, and co-insurance payments for all mammograms, including those provided to women more frequently than current federal screening guidelines such as annual mammograms for women in their 40s. The federal grants announced today complement a total $54 million included in the FY 2017 State Budget to protect New Yorkers and combat terrorism, as proposed by Governor Cuomo this spring.
Most of the significant changes will become effective 30 days after the governor signs the bill into law, meaning those preparing to get involved in NY state elections this fall will need to become familiar with the new requirements quickly. It shouldn't be about luck.
"We realize the importance of mammography to screen women for breast cancer and diagnosing breast cancer early, which ultimately helps save lives", said Helen Layman, director of radiology services at Olean General.
Lee said they chose the bike ride to spread the word about the legislation because riding together is something they enjoy doing. Jospeh Robach, R-Greece. While Morelle stood at the podium and introduced the governor, Lee reached over to grasp Cuomo's hand. But not all women are lucky enough to have access to those life-saving resources. In New York State, we are taking aggressive action to expand access to screenings, reduce insurance barriers and increase preventative services.
"I think that what we have accomplished in this state was fueled by that pain". Getting screened for early detection of breast cancer is often the first and most important step to beating the disease. I was lucky because I had early diagnosis. The law also says that hospitals and clinics have to be open four additional hours a week, after 5 p.m. and on weekends. "Anybody can go. So there is no reason why you should not have early detection and there is no reason why you cannot survive from a breast cancer diagnosis now in this state". The ride, which originated in Albany and concluded in Buffalo, was an effort to applaud new legislation that attempts to diminish the difficulty women face in accessing breast cancer treatment and prevention.
