Covia Health is bringing their 50-foot mobile suite to UHD’s campus Thursday and Friday to perform 3-D mammography and bone density screenings on December 5th and 6th between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Appointments for these important screenings are still available and can be booked by registering at https://uhd2016.coviahealth.org with PIN: 1280354. Registration closes on November 30.
The mobile suite will be located on 2nd Street between One Main Building and the Visitor’s Parking Garage. Each appointment takes 17-22 minutes, and results are sent to each person and their Primary Care Physician or OBGYN, whichever is preferred.
Eligibility for the screenings are as follows:
- 40 years or older and haven’t had a mammogram in the past 12-months. (Note: Some insurance carriers cover one baseline mammogram between the ages of 35-39 at 100%.)
- Insured (100% covered under UHD’s Health Select of Texas insurance plan. Covia does not accept KelseyCare powered by Community Health Choice insurance plan.)
DXA (Bone Density) Screening
- Have a risk factor surrounding osteoporosis and a doctor’s order. (Covia Health can help obtain this.)
