Enhanced Access to Breast Cancer Screening

The state is taking aggressive action on breast cancer. On Friday, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan and Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie announced an agreement to enhance access to breast cancer screenings. The agreement expands screening hours at hospitals and clinics; removes insurance barriers and offers paid leave for screenings to all public employees. Flanagan said, “We all recognize that early detection continues to be the best way to survive breast cancer.” In 2014, nearly 22 percent of women in New York State aged 50-74 reported not having mammograms at least every other year. Heastie said the agreement was designed to make “sure that women have access to the affordable breast cancer screenings they need to ensure life-saving early detection.”
