Lung Cancer Screening
EARLY DETECTION IS THE KEY TO PROLONGING AND SAVING LIVES.
Highpoint Health is on a mission to reduce the number of lung cancer deaths in Indiana by offering low-dose CT screenings for individuals at risk for lung cancer. Quick, painless and non-invasive, a low-dose CT screening can help detect lung cancer before it’s visible on an X-ray, and before there are symptoms.
LOW-DOSE CT SCREENINGS ARE PAID IN FULL BY MEDICARE, MEDICAID AND MOST PRIVATE INSURANCE.
In order to qualify for this screening, you must meet all these conditions:
- be a current smoker or former smoker who quit within the last 15 years.
have a smoking history of at least 30 pack years.
(1 pack per day for 30 years | 2 packs per day for 15 years | 3 packs per day for 10 years, etc.)
- have not had a CT thorax scan within the last 12 months.
- be between 55 and 77 years of age.
If you meet these conditions and are interested in a lung cancer screening, please schedule an appointment with your healthcare provider.
Some health plans, including Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance may charge co-pays if the screening facility is out of network. Check with your insurance provider.
