HealthONE Lung Cancer Screening Program
Are you at risk for lung cancer?
More than 2,500 Coloradans will be diagnosed with lung cancer this year*
Sarah Cannon, The HealthONE family of hospitals and Invision Sally Jobe have teamed up to offer low-dose CT scan screenings to help detect lung cancer.
Lung screening has been proven successful in diagnosing lung cancer earlier, when lung cancer can be more effectively treated. Know your risk.
Are you eligible for screening?
If you are 55 to 79-years-old and have smoked at least 30-pack years, you are eligible for screening — even if you quit during the past 15 years. (Calculate pack years by multiplying the number of packs smoked per day by the number of years smoked.) Those with current lung cancer symptoms are not eligible.
How does the screening program work?
The low-dose CT scan exam is offered for $250, a cost not typically covered by insurance. Call HealthONE at (720) 282-8888 to answer a few questions. Then, based on eligibility, you'll be referred to the most convenient screening site. The staff at the Lung Line will work with you and your primary care doctor to obtain the required physician’s order. A Lung Nurse Navigator will contact both you and your doctor with results and coordinate any necessary follow-up care.
Why choose HealthONE?
Lung screening is part of HealthONE’s multidisciplinary lung health program. Our physicians work together to provide coordinated, advanced care following national guidelines. Nurse navigators support patients throughout the entire experience and ensure patients receive the follow-up they need.
