The twenty five dollar mammogram

This is just excellent!!!   Small steps folks, this one goes on to explain how regardless of the deductible status of the insured the mammogram is still the same copayment!

Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas (R) on Tuesday (5/20) signed a bill into law that will require insurance providers in the state to charge no more than a $25 copayment for mammograms, the Barre Montpelier Times Argus reports. According to the Times Argus, the law will not help reduce mammography costs for uninsured women, but it will ap the out-of-pocket cost of a mammogram at $25. The National CaNational Cancer Institutencer Institute says that the average cost for mammograms is $50 to $150 but can be as much as $300.
