You’re likely to see a lot of pink ribbons in October. Pink ribbons are the symbol of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, promoting awareness and offering support and encouragement for more than a quarter century to those affected by breast cancer.
With October here, please consider whether it might be appropriate to do more for the month than merely wear a pink ribbon. Are you due for a mammogram? The FUSD plan provides coverage for a routine annual mammogram, and this coverage is not subject to the usual limit listed in the benefits handbook for other types of routine annual physical exams.
Use this benefit. With one routine mammogram per year covered, that’s one less reason not to have it done. It’s a way of observing Breast Cancer Awareness Month that could save your life.
