The idea to cover diagnostic mammograms like regular mammograms will not be tackled this year, but remains an item on the radar for future legislation. We will know more information from the Speaker’s office this week in regard to possible press event on lobby day, as well as information from DHCS regarding cost. Language has been finalized, and the bill will likely be introduced this week.
