PA Commissioner Miller Receives Breast Cancer Award

Pennsylvania Insurance Commissioner Teresa Miller accepted the Pink Ribbon Award at the 2016 PA Breast Cancer Coalition Conference on Oct. 10 for her work in expanding access to 3D mammography in Pennsylvania.

Last year, Gov. Tom Wolf announced that 3D mammograms must be treated the same as 2D mammograms. Under this guidance, the 3D procedure is covered by insurance the same way as a 2D procedure, as an annual mammogram at no cost to patients under Pennsylvania law.

“Pennsylvania was one of the first states in the nation to establish parity between 3D and 2D procedures, and we are committed to making sure consumers know and understand that they have access to this vital and potentially life-saving procedure,” Miller said.
