Rep. Wasserman Schultz Critical Of USPSTF’s Mammography Draft Recommendations

In the Washington Post (4/24) “To Your Health” blog, US Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) writes that the US Preventive Services Task Force’s mammography draft recommendations “could lead to insurance companies dropping coverage of mammograms for women under age 50, as well as other preventive techniques that would help protect young women from getting breast cancer and help those who do have it.” Rep. Wasserman Schultz writes, “I urge the USPSTF to reverse its recommendation and avoid the needless deaths that will inevitably result when women between 40 and 50 don’t get mammograms, believing that the experts said it would be unnecessary.”
