Heart Health Resources
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Each year in the United States, about 264,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer and 42,000 people die from the disease (CDC). Mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, before you experience symptoms and while it is easier to treat. An annual preventive mammogram is covered 100% for members of State of Delaware health plans (age and sex parameters apply). Check out other services offered to members of State of Delaware non-Medicare health plans on the Cancer Resources page.
Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. There are many factors that contribute to heart disease, such as smoking, lack of physical activity, obesity, and a poor diet. You can prevent heart disease by implementing simple lifestyle changes into your daily routine. Here, you can find all of the resources available to you to help you prevent or manage heart disease and help keep you healthy.
