Every woman deserves quality breast health care. TAN Healthcare and The Rose breast health center have formed a partnership to improve access to mammography services for TAN’s women patients, specifically those who are uninsured. The partnership gives TAN patients a third option when scheduling their mammogram. Patients may also choose services from The Gift of Life and Beaumont MRI.

The Rose’s next mobile screening day in Orange is scheduled for Tuesday, March 5, at TAN Healthcare Orange at 3737 N. 16th Street. Appointments can be made by calling 409-920-4223.

With the help of grant funding, The Rose is able to provide the screening at no charge for those eligible: women who are age 40 and over, uninsured, and have a household income that falls under the 200% of the federal poverty income level guidelines. If a biopsy is needed, that is covered by the grant as well. For women whose results are positive and need further treatment, The Rose’s navigators help get patients into care. The Rose also accepts insurance. In fact, for every three insured women who get screened, The Rose is able to support one uninsured woman.

One in eight U.S. women will develop breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. When detected early, breast cancer responds better to treatment and greatly improves the chances for survival. If it is time for your annual mammogram, call to schedule your appointment at TAN Healthcare in Orange, 409-920-4223, or Beaumont, 409-832-3377.

TAN Healthcare provides primary medical services Monday-Friday at its two health center locations in Beaumont at 1495 N. 7th Street and Orange at 3737 N. 16th Street. The centers also offer behavioral health counseling, patient navigation, and an onsite pharmacy, PharmBlue Texas, which offers easy packaging and home delivery. TAN continues its specialized care for individuals with chronic conditions such as HIV, Hepatitis C, diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity.
