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 (ABC) or any other financial assistance programs. Mammograms for ladies who meet this criteria, live in Marshall County and/or have a family physician who is on staff at Marshall Medical Centers are eligible to receive annual mammogram screenings free of charge. This assistance program is made possible by the proceeds from The Foundation for Marshall Medical Centers’ annual Pink Pumpkin Run.

Requirements: The requirements for participation in MAP include meeting the income requirements established by Marshall Medical Centers in the financial assistance program prior to or after testing. As a patient, you may be referred by a physician at either facility – Marshall Medical Center North or Marshall Medical Center South - or you may self-refer. If you are self-referring, appointments for mammograms can be made by calling Marshall Medical Centers’ Central Scheduling Department at 256-840-4704.

Scheduling: When you call Central Scheduling to schedule your appointment and indicate your interest in MAP, a representative will ask you a series of questions for screening purposes. If pre-screened prior to testing, you will be registered as a MAP patient which will signify the charges for your screening will be covered by MAP.
