Prieto, Mukherji, Benson, Garcia & Vainieri Huttle Bill to Expand Mammogram Insurance Coverage for Adopted Women OK’d by General AssemblyLegislation Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto and Assembly Democrats Raj Mukherji, Daniel Benson, Carmelo Garcia and Valerie Vainieri Huttle sponsored to expand access to mammograms for adopted women in New Jersey was approved 76-0 on Thursday by the General Assembly.
"Women with a close relative who has had breast cancer are at twice the risk of having it themselves, which means family history is an essential element in the process of diagnosing and treating the disease," said Prieto (D-Bergen/Hudson). "For the adoptees and children of adoptees who are without access to that information, this legislation has the potential to be life-saving."
