    under Medicare, they wanted cash.  Wish I knew how you got them.

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

      That's awful. Just not right.  Medicare has always paid (80% of the amount they set) for mammograms.  I never did anything different from any of my medical needs.  Make an appointment, show your card, simple as that.  Anyway, whatever the circumstances I'm glad you're getting them now.  Two years after I turned 65, my routine mammogram turned up breast cancer but because I had them every year it was caught in an early stage and an outpaitient lumpectomy and 7 weeks of radiation took care of it. It's ten years later and I still get one every year.

      btw, call Medicare if you have doubts or questions about anything.  It's amazing how you can usually get them on the phone with little wait time and they're usually very helpful.  1-800-633-4227
