The Mercy St. Louis Mammography Van will also be at the Spring Into Health Wellness Fair. Bring an insurance card and a photo ID to your appointment so the cost of the digital screening mammogram can be billed to your health insurance provider. For women who have no health insurance or have health insurance with a high deductible, Mercy does receive some funding to provide free mammograms and breast screenings. If you have a low income and are uninsured orunder‐insured, range in age from 40 to 64 and need a mammogram/breast screening, call to see if you qualify for a free screening.
To schedule a mammogram, call (314) 251‐6300 or (800) 446‐3742. Walk‐ups also are welcome.
