Northside Hospital offers free mammograms for women without insurance

Throughout October and all year long, the Northside Hospital Cancer Institute offers no-cost screening mammograms and other breast diagnostic procedures for qualified women who cannot afford them.

More cases of breast cancer are diagnosed and treated at Atlanta’s Northside Hospital than anywhere else in the Southeast. Early detection of breast cancer saves the lives of thousands of women each year. However, medically underserved and uninsured women often lack access to care.

At Northside, financial assistance is available for screening mammograms, ultrasounds, biopsies and other breast diagnostic procedures for uninsured women who meet specific eligibility requirements. In 2016, more than 1,200 underinsured women in Georgia received breast cancer screening and diagnostic services through the Northside Hospital Cancer Institute.

Funding is made possible through generous grants from the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer, Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta, and the Northside Hospital Foundation.

Services are available at select Northside Hospital imaging locations across Georgia, as well as aboard Northside’s ScreenAtlanta mobile-mammography van. Interpretation services are available upon request.

For more information or to schedule a mammogram, call 770-667-4400.
