In recognition of Women’s Health Month, Beaufort Memorial is offering the opportunity to purchase screening mammograms for $99 through MDsave now through May 31.

Mammograms are available in both Beaufort and Bluffton and can be purchased online at Patients who purchase the $99 mammogram by the end of this month will be able to schedule their screening appointments any time within six months of purchase.

“During the Covid-19 crisis, many things in our lives have been put on hold, including routine medical appointments,” said Jackie Brown, clinical manager of the Breast Health Center at Beaufort Memorial. “Women’s Health Month is a good reminder that it’s more important than ever to care for ourselves.”

MDsave is an online healthcare marketplace designed for patients who have no health insurance or high-deductible health plans. Through MDsave patients can receive discounts on a wide range of medical services, including lab work, imaging tests, physical therapy, primary care visits and a variety of same-day surgeries – and avoid complicated hospital billing. Rather than receive separate invoices from the hospital and physicians, the services are bundled into one bill and paid directly to MD Save.

Patients who wish to purchase a $99 screening mammogram should:

Visit and select a service and preferred location now through May 31.

Pay online with a major credit card, debit card, FSA or HAS card and receive a service voucher.

Call 843-522-5015 to schedule an appointment any time in the next six months.

Present the voucher at the time of the appointment.

The Breast Health Center has implemented enhanced safety and social distancing measures including employee and patient screenings for COVID-19, additional spacing in waiting areas, and staff use of protective masks, gloves, and eyewear. Patients are encouraged to wear a mask to their appointment, as well.

“Our main concern is keeping our patients safe and healthy,” said Brown.
