Lone Star Circle of Care’s Big Pink Bus travels Central Texas providing free/low-cost screening mammograms. Early detection is key in the fight against breast cancer. If you are age 40 and older, please talk to your health care provider about regular mammography screening.
You can get your screening mammogram onboard the Big Pink Bus if you:
- Are age 40 and older
- Are uninsured, or have coverage from MAP, MAP Basic, or select commercial insurance
- Have not had a mammogram in the last 12 months
- Are not pregnant or breastfeeding
- Are not experiencing breast issues such as lumps, discharge, or pain
- Can independently walk up and down stairs
To schedule an appointment, please call 1-844-PINK-BUS.
If you need to obtain a copy of your mammogram images and report, please visit the ARA Diagnostic Imaging website and complete the online Medical Records Request form. You can also request images and records by calling ARA directly at 512-453-6100.
