TRICARE Now Covers 3-D Mammography

As of Jan. 1, 2020, TRICARE covers digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), commonly referred to as 3-D mammography, as a screening option for annual population-based breast cancer screening under the Provisional Coverage Program.

DBT is a 3-D mammogram, where an X-ray source moves over the breast to obtain cross-sectional images of the tissue. This has the potential to improve accuracy in detecting abnormalities. Formerly, TRICARE only covered annual 2-D mammograms for breast cancer screening, and DBT was covered for diagnostic purposes (e.g., as a secondary mammogram after a patient receives a suspicious or positive result on a DM screening test).

The 3-D Mammography Toolkit contains turnkey products including talking points, social media content, and articles about the change in coverage.
