An initial evaluation for a free lung cancer screening will take place on Tuesday, April 15 from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. at Flint Public Library, One South Street, Middleton.
Beverly Hospital and Beverly Radiology Associates are offering a free, low-dose chest CT screening to individuals who meet the established National Comprehensive Cancer Network's (NCCN) high-risk criteria. Persons between the ages of 50 and 74 who have smoked at least an average of one pack of cigarettes per day for twenty-years, may meet the criteria for a free screening. To learn if you meet the criteria, an initial assessment is required and will be held on April 15 from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the Flint Public Library, Middleton.
Appointments are not necessary and the initial evaluation only takes a few minutes. It is not necessary to be a resident of Middleton to participate; all are welcome and invited to attend.
While private insurers and the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) do not currently cover low-dose CT lung screening, and most hospitals charge a self-pay of at least $350. for the screening, Beverly Hospital is determined to help bring awareness and accessibility of this testing to all people at high-risk at no charge.
The screening does not obligate you to return to a Beverly Hospital facility for any further screenings, for further evaluation of any findings, or any other services that Beverly Hospital provides.
