Below are some things to expect and think about before receiving your mammogram.
• To get a mammogram, you will need an order from your doctor. Contact your primary care physician, gynecologist or family physician to get an order.
• Different insurance plans have different healthcare providers. Consult your insurance plan to find out which mammogram providers are available to you.

• If you are enrolled in any of these programs (Medicaid/FamilyCare/HFS Medical Card/Medicare/Veterans Healthcare) contact your doctor.
Here are some questions to ask your mammography provider to see that you get the highest quality mammography:
- Will the mammogram be read by a mammography specialist - also known as a breast imaging specialist?
- For women younger than 50, is the mammography machine digital?
- Will more than one radiologist interpret the film? (It helps to have two radiologists independently interpret every film)
- How many mammograms does the lead radiologist read annually? (The FDA recommends doctors read at least 480 a year)
- How long will it take to receive my mammography results?
- If the results of the mammogram are suspicious, what are my next steps?
- How do I get ready for my mammogram?
