Mammography Program

Princeton partners with two local radiology facilities to provide a mammography screening program for our female faculty and staff members ages 35 and over. We offer this program twice year — spring and fall. Human Resources mails eligible female faculty and staff members a flier announcing the program. 

Locations

There are two convenient locations for participants to schedule appointments. They are Princeton Radiology, 419 N. Harrison Street, Princeton, NJ 08540; and Princeton Radiology at Quakerbridge, 8 Quakerbridge Plaza, Mercerville, NJ 08619. Both facilites utilize digital mammography equipment and offer University employees our own appointment schedule, available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Women’s Health & the Cancer Rights Act 

The Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act of 1998 requires all group health plans that provide medical and surgical benefits with respect to mastectomy to provide coverage: 
  • for reconstruction of the breast on which the mastectomy was performed
  • reconstructive surgery of the other breast to produce a symmetrical appearance
  • prostheses and treatment of physical complications of all stages of mastectomy, including lymph edema (swelling associated with removal of the lymph nodes) 
These services must be provided in a manner determined in consultation with the attending physician and the patient. This coverage may be subject to annual deductibles and coinsurance provisions applicable to other such medical and surgical benefits provided under the plan. You should refer to the summary plan description for deductibles and coinsurance information applicable to the plan in which you are enrolled.
 
You can count on support from knowledgeable and responsive HR staff when you have a benefits question or problem. Just call or e-mail us. We’re here to help!
 
 
While the University intends to continue each of the benefit plans, the University reserves the right to terminate or amend any plan, at any time, and for any reason.
