Insurance companies state that they are willing to pay 100% of a "screening mammogram", but not for the “I think we found something”; what the @#!$ does that mean? In my case, I felt a lump, and made the mistake of mentioning it to the technician during my mammogram. Should I have mentioned the lump, or should have I played dumb? Well, mentioning the lump cost me $600, and that is with my health insurance coverage (part of that was the “you need to come back because I think we found something” factor). So two mammograms, $600 out of my pocket, two missed days of work, 4 weeks of no good sleep (because I could not get an appointment any earlier), and a potential ulcer from all the stress….it was normal! Was it worth it? Could I have done things differently? Well….
