Lung Cancer Screening
 

Lung cancer is a leading cause of death and the smoking remains the primary cause. Maury Regional Health is committed to finding lung cancer at an early stage by offering screenings to identify abnormalities in the lungs before any signs or symptoms may appear. Lung screenings are performed using computed tomography (CT) technology.

In order to qualify for a CT lung screening, patients must meet the following criteria:

  • Be 55-77 years of age
  • Have no signs or symptoms of lung cancer
  • Have a tobacco smoking history of at least 30 pack-years (one pack-year=smoking one pack per day for one year; 1 pack=20 cigarettes)
  • Be a current smoker or one who has quit within the last 15 years; and
  • Receive a written order for lung cancer screening with Low-Dose CT that meets the requirements described in the National Coverage Determination by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

does insurance cover this service?

Many insurance providers will cover a CT lung screening if the patient qualifies for the screening. Patients should always contact their insurance company for verification of coverage and benefits. A self-pay option is available for those not covered by insurance at a cost of $250.
