The legislation would remove financial barriers to imaging that can rule out breast cancer or confirm the need for a biopsy. It would eliminate out-of-pocket costs for diagnostic and supplemental breast imaging when medically necessary.

Lange in a statement said the legislation would help diagnose breast cancer earlier and ultimately save lives.
