PATIENT TESTING
On April 11, 2020, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Treasury, and Labor jointly issued guidance on Section 6001 of the Families First Act, as amended by the CARES Act, which requires comprehensive private health insurance plans to cover testing needed to detect or diagnose COVID-19, and the administration of the testing.

Colorectal Caner Screening
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in men and women in the United States. Death rates from this type of cancer continue to be higher in African Americans than non-Hispanic whites. That’s why getting screened  starting at the age of 50 years old  is so important for all adults. For some higher risk patients, screenings may occur sooner, Your provider will help determine when you should start getting tested. 

Symptoms that can occur can include, a change in bowel habits that lasts for more than a few day, a feeling that you need to have a bowel movement that’s not relieved by having one, rectal bleeding with bright red blood, blood in the stool, cramping or abdominal pain, weakness and fatigue or unintended weight loss.  
Breast Caner Screening
Breast cancer screening tests are critical for detection and saving lives.  After the age of 40 , all women are eligible for free breast cancer screenings through their insurance or by visiting the Kenosha Community Health Center. If you do not have insurance, there are assistance programs that cover the cost. 

If you’re at higher than average risk of breast cancer, you may need to be screened earlier and more often than women at average risk. Your provider will help determine if you are high risk and when to start screenings.  

The warning signs of breast cancer are not the same for all women. The most common signs include a change in the look or feel of the breast or a change in the look or feel of the nipple and nipple discharge. If you feel a lump in your breast, try not to panic. Most lumps are not breast cancer. However, if you find a lump or notice any change in your breast or underarm area, make an appointment with a KCHC doctor. The most common screening test for breast cancer is a Mammogram. For some women at higher than average risk of breast cancer, a breast MRI may also be used.
