She posted on the 10th that it was scheduled for Friday.... I've been guessing that she meant this upcoming Friday, not the day she posted about it.

Well had the scan yesterday. Surprised at how simple the test was given the copay amount. The report will be sent to the doc on Monday. Will update you when I get the results!

Praise God I got the all clear call just a minute ago. They did find I have an enlarged Thyroid which will require further testing. Thank you for your thoughts, messages, and prayers.

Now that news is worth every penny of your co pay!! As for your thyroid, good to get the further tests but I'm guessing things will turn out just fine. I don't think a scan has been done on anyone where something out of the normal range hasn't been picked up lol! If only we were all "normal"  :wink: .

I'm surprised to hear there is any co-pay at all.  It might be worth looking further into

 

http://www.lung.org/...1-No-Copay.html

 

There IS the little trick phrase "non-grandfathered"... otherwise all are required to cover it without copay.

 

Individuals at High Risk Should Get Screened for Lung Cancer Coverage with no cost sharing will be available to many at high risk starting January 1, 2015.

(December 18, 2014) - Chicago, IL

 

For the first time ever, starting January 1, individuals who are at high risk for developing lung cancer may be eligible for screening at no out-of-pocket cost.  Most people with private insurance, individuals who are enrolled in their state health insurance marketplaces and people enrolled in state Medicaid expansion will be eligible for early detection screening without cost to them.

Patients considered to be high risk and potentially eligible for screening are 55 through 80 years of age; have a 30 pack-year history of smoking (this means 1 pack a day for 30 years, 2 packs a day for 15 years, etc.); and are a current smoker, or have quit within the last 15 years.  Screening people at high risk has the potential to save more than 13,000 lives a year. 

“Individuals who meet the high risk criteria should talk with their doctors about being screened,” said Harold P. Wimmer, National President and CEO.  “No one deserves lung cancer and that’s why the American Lung Association is working to let everyone know that early detection screening will be available without additional out-of-pocket costs January 1 for people at high risk.” 

In December 2013, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) awarded a “B” grade to annual low-dose CT screening for individuals at high risk for lung cancer.  Under the Affordable Care Act, effective prevention measures – graded A or B – are included in the Essential Health Benefit.   Individuals who are enrolled in state health marketplace plans, enrolled in Medicaid-expansion programs and those with non-grandfathered private insurance plans who meet the screening criteria will have insurance coverage for screening without co-payments or other barriers starting January 1, 2015 or the beginning of their next plan year.  The American Lung Association has created a chart to help explain this coverage. The Lung Association also created a checklist for individuals to use when calling their insurance companies to determine if they are eligible for screening with no cost.

I can't do all that fancy quoting like Marci, but yes I'm grateful I had the test. Kats been on us a couple of years now, but since I'm the baby in the bunch ( lol-Baby Huey-just 57 in 10 days)... I waited. Once I talk to sissy and Kat I knew it couldn't wait. It's surreal how this place, these friends , got us to this post. My copay was over 400 but it was worth every penny. Idk what the tyroid thing is about( can I use it as an excuse for weight gain), but another plus from having the test imo.

Yah, blame it on the thyroid... and is definitely worth checking out.  Mine showed some thyroid nodules, which I'm also getting checked.  They didn't "light up" on the PET scan, so there's no concern about cancer.

Lol...you made the font bold and extra large....see what I mean! Yes we will sleep good tonight. I didn't even google enlarged thyroid because I had enough news for the day. I spent time " fishing" for potential quitters. Damn I wish I could wave a wand and show them how much they'll love the freedom from addiction. Oh well
