Effective April 1, 2017, UnitedHealthcare will provide coverage for Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) for breast cancer screening and diagnostic testing. DBT is also called a 3-D mammogram. This change applies to our UnitedHealthcare fully insured and self-funded (ASO) customers. As an integral part of our mission to help people live healthier lives, we are offering an additional mammography option.
This policy update aligns with recommendations of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN). NCCN is a not-for-profit alliance of leading cancer centers that sets standards for high-quality cancer care using evidenced-based guidelines. The NCCN recently changed its recommendations to include DBT as an alternative to conventional breast cancer screening.
Individual risk factors vary. UnitedHealthcare recommends that each individual discuss mammography screening options with their care provider to determine which test best fits the individual’s needs.
