Lung Cancer Screening

Saint Francis Health System is offering low-dose CT screening to individuals who are high risk for developing lung cancer. Lung cancer screening has been proven to lower mortality by 20%.*

Who is at high risk of developing lung cancer?
  1. People age 55–79 with a smoking history of at least 30 pack years (i.e., one pack-per-day for 30 years or two packs-per-day for 15 years).

  2. People age 50–54 with a smoking history of at least a pack-a-day for 20 years; and one or more of the following:
  • with a history of cancer and/or radiation therapy;
  • have an immediate family member with history of lung cancer;
  • have documented chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); or
  • have had radon or other environmental exposure (i.e., asbestos).

    • Payment
      Coverage varies by insurance plan and payer. If your screening is not covered by insurance, the $99 discounted fee will apply. Medicare and Medicaid do not cover the lung cancer screening at this time.
