It is October 2012, Breast Cancer Awareness Month  , and a chance to highlight a fact of Obamacare  that might not be known to millions of women:  Women’s preventive care, INCLUDING mammograms, must be offered to all women over 40 with no cost sharing.  That means that whatever health plan you have covers a mammogram over the age of 40,  at no out of pocket costs to you.  No copay.  No payment because you have not met your deductible.  No cost sharing at all .  There is officially no excuse:  GET YOUR MAMMOGRAM!
