Screening is open to anyone, but advance appointments are required.
For patients with health insurance or Medicare, the mammogram costs will be billed to their health insurance provider. For financial assistance for a screening mammogram, call the Marshfield Clinic Patient Assistance staff at (715) 389-4475 to determine eligibility.
These screenings are made possible by a grant from Furniture & Appliance Mart and the Fonti family.
