Mammography Assistance Program (MAP)

Purpose: The purpose of the Mammography Assistance Program (MAP) is to provide mammogram screenings for patients of any age who are un-insured, under- insured or do not meet the qualifications for the Alabama Breast and Cervical Cancer Program or any other assistance programs. Marshall Medical Centers has established an account funded by donations to pay for the mammogram at a 60% discount rate as well as the Radiologist reading fee discounted at 60%.

Requirements: The requirements for participation are to meet the income requirements established by Marshall Medical Centers in the financial assistance program prior to or after testing. A patient may be referred by a physician at either facility or they may self-refer at the South campus only.

Scheduling: Central scheduling will schedule for mammography at either facility. At the time of scheduling central scheduling will ask all private pay patients a series of questions for screening purposes. Once the patient is identified as a candidate for MAP they will be directed to the financial assistance department at (256) 894-6600. If pre-screened prior to testing the patient will be registered with MAP as the guarantor to notify the radiologist to expect payment from Marshall Medical Centers.

Financial Assistance: The financial assistance department will conduct a verbal screening for qualification and mail the packet to the patient for completion. The packet must be received, processed, and approved by financial assistance for funds to be paid.
