Will this guideline affect my ability to get a mammogram?

Insurance coverage is usually linked to U.S. Preventive Services USPSTF (USPSTF) screening recommendations, not ACS guidelines. The American Cancer Society strongly believes that women between the ages of 40 and 44 and women over the age of 55 should have access to annual mammograms without being charged a co-pay. To be sure, you may want to check with your health insurance company before scheduling a mammogram.
