October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

| October 03, 2019

HI! My name is Dee and I am the newest agent here at Manzi Insurance. I work in our health department focusing on Medicare and Access Health Insurance.

I wanted to take a minute to talk to you about the month of October and Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Every year from Oct 1st to Oct 31st there is an international Health Campaign organized by major breast cancer charities to increase awareness of the disease.

Did you know that under the Affordable Care Act, all qualified medical insurance plans are required to offer Mammograms as part of a preventative exam? Women should start having an annual Mammogram at the age of 40 (or earlier if you are at a higher risk). By doing so this can help detect breast cancer earlier which reduces the risk of death from this disease by 25-30%!
