Mammovan visits Southern Nevada, mammography screenings available at various locations

Health

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — From now until April 22, Nevada Health Centers (NVHC) is offering mammography screenings in its Mammovan in Las Vegas, Laughlin and Lincoln. This will help ensure women due for screenings can access them, in the fight against breast cancer.

The organization says patients will be pre-screened for COVID-19-related symptoms in a clinic before entering the van.

Mammograms are largely for women who are 40+, but screenings are also available for younger individuals. Those younger than 40 must have a screening referral from a provider.

NVHC says screening is available to all women “regardless of economic status,” and it accepts most major insurance plans, Medicaid and Medicare. For those who are uninsured, the center offers a sliding fee scale.

To make an appointment, call 1-877-581-6266, option 1.
