What a difference six months — and a health-care overhaul proposal — can make! Just six months ago, the U.S Preventive Services Task Force, which works within the Department of Health and Human Services as a “best practice” panel on prevention, sounded a warning signal over a slight decline in annual mammograms among women in their 40s.

Of note - GE's new insurance plan that starts Jan 1 will pay 100% of preventive screenings (not subject to any deductible) if they are recommended by this task force. If they aren't on the list, its out-of-pocket before deductible - 80% after. Unfortunately, they published all their information for this year saying mammograms were covered.
Any bets on how long it takes for Medicaid and other state plans like BadgerCare to follow that lead.
