Fuschillo Sponsors Breast Cancer Screening

New York State Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr., R-Merrick), in conjunction with NuHealth/Nassau Health Care Corporation, will be sponsoring a breast cancer screening program on Thursday, Feb. 21 from 8:45 a.m. to noon at the North Bellmore Public Library.

Appointments are necessary and will be scheduled on first-come, first-served basis. On site nurses and technicians will provide a mammography, a clinical breast examination and instructions for self examination. Patients and their physicians will be notified of the exam
results.

NuHealth’s guidelines for the program are as follows:
  • The program is open to all Nassau County women ages 40 and over.
  • Women covered by insurance, Medicaid or Medicare will have their carrier billed and must bring their information card to the screening. NuHealth policy now requires patients to be responsible for any co-pays charged by their carrier.
  • Women ages 40 and older without health insurance will not incur any out-of-pocket costs.

Women who would like to take advantage of the Feb. 21 breast cancer screening program at the North Bellmore Library should call Fuschillo’s office at 516-882-0630 to make an appointment.
