Representative Primavera, prime bill sponsor, presented House Bill 16-1381 to the committee. The bill requires that health insurance plans provide coverage for one breast cancer screening per year that must be provided using the breast imaging modality appropriate for each individual's health needs as determined by the person's physician or radiologist. The bill defines "breast cancer screening" as any noninvasive imaging modality, or combination of modalities, as recommended by the American College of Radiology and considered as an acceptable standard of care for the early detection of breast cancer. Breast cancer screening under this standard may include a clinical exam or follow-up imaging, as recommended by the American College of Radiology, in the event of an incomplete screening result.
