The healthcare providers involved in this program believe our community deserves access to a safe and responsible lung cancer screening program. Our program is an approved Screening Center of Excellence, which insures the program utilizes national standards and provides the highest quality of care.
At this time, most insurances do not cover the cost of lung cancer screening. Lung Cancer screening consists of a low-dose CT scan – a quick and painless scan. There are a limited number of lung cancer screening programs in the nation, and the majority charge a fee. The NWA lung Cancer Screening Program provides the CT at no charge. We believe that individuals at high risk of developing lung cancer should have access to this life saving test without worry of cost.
Please note: While lung screening CT exam is free, any additional testing and/or evaluation should be covered by your insurance.
