  • Responding to the uproar that ensued after the new mammogram guidelines were released a few weeks ago, the Senate has passed an amendment requiring insurers to cover screening tests recommended by the task force, including cervical cancer screenings and mammograms.

     

    From CNN:

    The chamber approved a Democratic-sponsored amendment to provide women with low-cost mammograms and other preventative tests, while rejecting a GOP proposal to prevent government boards from influencing coverage of screening tests for women.
