N.J. breast density reporting bill signed into law

On Wednesday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed legislation requiring mammography reports provided to patients to include information about breast density.

The bill, S-792, makes New Jersey the 14th state to enact some form of breast density notification legislation.

In addition to notification, S-792 also requires insurers to cover follow-up evaluations, such as ultrasound, in women with dense breast tissue.
