Cancer screenings through Gartner
Age: Brought to you by Gartner
Each year, at your annual physical, you may be screened for breast and cervical cancer. These are preventive care screenings, which are services that help keep disease or bad health from occurring. Your benefits make it easier for you to afford some preventive care services. The following screenings are covered through Cigna:
A mammogram is a screening procedure that helps detect breast cancer. Mammograms are considered preventive care, and are a routine procedure for women. Cigna covers mammograms at the discretion of your primary care provider or OB/GYN.
A Pap smear is a procedure that checks cervical cells for the presence of cellular changes, or dysplasia, that could be a precursor of cervical cancer. Pap smears are considered preventive medicine, and are a routine part of care for all women.
If you are enrolled in Gartner's Cigna medical plan, you'll be fully covered for preventive care services, such as cancer screenings. To learn more about your benefits, call (800) 244-6224 or tap the button below to visit Cigna's website.
