The item titled “Annual Mammographic Screening in Older Women,” appearing in “Tips from Other Journals” (October 1, 1998, page 1192), contained an incorrect statement about Medicare reimbursement for mammogram screening. As of January 1, 1998, Medicare started reimbursing for annual screening mammograms for women ages 40 years and older; in addition, the deductible was waived for screening mammograms.
