Additional Information from our Ascension St. Vincent partners:
We offer Digital Tomosynthesis (or 3-D mammograms) on the mobile unit as part of our standard of care. Digital Tomosynthesis is an advanced form of mammography that creates a 3-dimensional image of your breast tissue. Most health insurance providers cover all costs associated with 3D mammograms; however, please consult with your health insurance provider to determine if the cost for the 3D – Digital Tomosynthesis is fully covered. You may request a 2D-mammogram if the costs are not covered by your health insurance provider.
Please review this information letter and the screening guidelines to determine if you are eligible to participate.
If you are eligible, please call the Ascension St. Vincent Breast Center at (317) 338-9595 to schedule your appointment. When calling, please inform the operator that you are calling from CARMEL CLAY SCHOOLS to schedule an appointment on the mobile unit on the specified date and time.
When calling to schedule your appointment, you will be asked for information which includes the name of your primary care physician and insurance coverage.
Registration deadline is one week prior to our scheduled visit. A minimum number of 10 scheduled appointments are required at that time to keep our visit.
Screening appointments typically last for 20 minutes. Please make every effort to be on time for your appointment. If you are 10 or more minutes late, your appointment will be cancelled.
You must bring your driver’s license or photo ID and insurance card with you to your mammogram appointment. If your health insurance information is electronic, please bring a paper copy of your information with you to your appointment.
Please wear a two-piece outfit.
If you are wearing deodorant at the time of your appointment, you will be asked to wipe it off because deodorant distorts the images. Fresh deodorant will be provided.
To maintain safety for both you and our staff, please comply with the following guidelines –
Do not enter the mobile unit before your appointment time. While we appreciate those of you who come early to appointments, we have scheduled mammograms at an interval that allows the patient before you to have their mammogram and exit the unit before you enter and to give us time to sanitize surfaces after each patient.
Wear a mask. Any type of face covering is acceptable upon entering. You will be asked to put on a hospital-grade mask if you don’t have one. Please be sure the mask covers your mouth and nose. All our mobile unit crew members will also be wearing a hospital mask.
COVID VACCINE INFORMATION: The Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) has recommended that women not have a screening mammogram for at least six (6) weeks after their second COVID vaccine dose and/or their booster shot. This is because the two approved COVID-19 vaccines can potentially lead to inflammation of the lymph nodes located in the armpit which can mimic findings that can lead to further evaluation for possible breast malignancies. At this time, please do not schedule an appointment for a screening mammogram on the mobile unit if you have started receiving your vaccines or until you are at least six weeks post-vaccine.
St. Vincent is one of the pioneers when it comes to breast health. Each year more than 2,500 women receive their screening mammograms through the mobile mammography unit. We believe that early detection saves lives and is the strongest weapon in fighting cancer.
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is offered through Ascension St. Vincent and available for all CCS employees, spouses and children (up to age 26).
