Lung cancer screenings
covers lung cancer screenings with Low Dose Computed Tomography (LDCT) once each year if you meet all of these conditions:
- You’re age 55-77.
- You don’t have signs or symptoms of lung cancer (asymptomatic).
- You’re either a current smoker or have quit smoking within the last 15 years.
- You have a tobacco smoking history of at least 30 “pack years” (an average of one pack (20 cigarettes) per day for 30 years).
- You get a written order from your doctor.
You pay nothing for this service if your doctor accepts
Before your first lung cancer screening, you’ll need to schedule a lung cancer screening counseling and shared decision-making visit with your doctor to discuss the benefits and risks of lung cancer screening. You and your doctor can decide whether lung cancer screening is right for you.
