We accept PPO and HMO
PPO stands for Preferred Provider Organization. Just like an HMO or Health Maintenance Organization, a PPO plan offers a network of healthcare providers you can use for your medical care. These providers who are Physicians have agreed to provide care

to the plan members at a certain rate. Unlike an HMO, a PPO offers you the freedom to receive care from any provider—in or out of your network. This means you can see any doctor or specialist, or use any hospital. In addition, PPO plans do not require

you to choose a Primary Care Physician (PCP) and do not require referrals. For example, if you already have a doctor you like, you can continue receiving care from that provider. If you need to see a specialist, you do not have to first consult with a PCP.

No referrals are required for any doctor, specialist or hospital. Another bonus: If you find yourself in need of medical care when you are away from home, you can see any healthcare provider you choose.

HMO stands for Health Maintenance Organization. HMOs have their own network of doctors, hospitals and other healthcare providers who have agreed to accept payment at a certain level for any services they provide. This allows the HMO to keep costs

in check for its members.There are two features that set HMOs apart from other types of healthcare plans: cost and choice. 

Lower Cost:Because of the agreed-upon payment level, an HMO usually offers lower monthly premiums than other types of insurance plans. They also tend to have lower copays and coinsurance, which helps make them more affordable. HMOs are an

affordable option for people who don’t usually need anything more than basic medical care like annual checkups or immunizations.However, even though costs are generally lower with an HMO, they don’t cover any out-of-network care, except in a true


With an HMO, you must choose a Primary Care Physician (PCP) from a network of local healthcare providers when you join. This is the doctor you will see whenever you need medical care. Your PCP will be the provider with the best overall picture of your

health and will be the one to coordinate any additional care you might need. If you were to need the care of a specialist, you would first see your PCP. Then, if needed, he or she would provide a referral to a specialist within the HMO’s network.

For example, if you suffer from back pain you would first be examined by your PCP. If your doctor determined you needed the services of a specialist, he or she would refer you to an in-network specialist for care. Since the specialist is in your network,

those services would be covered by your insurance after making any copays or coinsurance and meeting your deductible.

There are a lot of decisions to make when it comes to choosing a health insurance plan. One of the first decisions you will need to make is which type of plan is right for you. You’ve probably heard the terms HMO and PPO, but do you really understand

the differences between the two? Which one is cheaper? Which one provides the coverage you need. To help you decide, we’ve created a simple comparison chart that lays out the basic features of HMOs and PPOs. Once you have a better understanding

of each plan type and how it works, it will be much easier to choose the plan that’s best for you and your family.

Mammography is specialized medical imaging that uses a low-dose x-ray system to see inside the breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, aids in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women.

An x-ray (radiograph) is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Imaging with x-rays involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body. X-rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging.

Mammography plays a central part in early detection of breast cancers because it can show changes in the breast years before a patient or physician can feel them. Current guidelines from the American College of Radiology (ACR) and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) recommend screening mammography every year for women, beginning at age 40. Research has shown that annual mammograms lead to early detection of breast cancers, when they are most curable and breast-conservation therapies are available.

The ACR and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) also suggest that women who have had breast cancer, and those who are at increased risk due to a family history of breast or ovarian cancer, should seek expert medical advice about whether they should begin screening before age 40 and the need for other types of screening. If you are at high risk for breast cancer, you may need to obtain a breast MRI in addition to your annual mammogram.

Tell your doctor about any breast symptoms or problems, prior surgeries, hormone use, whether you have a family or personal history of breast cancer, and if there’s a possibility you are pregnant. If possible, obtain copies of your prior mammograms and make them available to your radiologist on the day of your exam. Leave jewelry at home and wear loose, comfortable clothing. You may be asked to wear a gown. Don’t wear deodorant, talcum powder or lotion under your arms or on your breasts as these may appear on the mammogram and interfere with correct diagnosis.



The goal of screening for prostate cancer is to find cancers that may be at high risk for spreading if not treated, and to find them early before they spread.

Screening for prostate cancer begins with a blood test called a prostate specific antigen (PSA) test. This test measures the level of PSA in the blood. PSA is a substance made by the prostate. The levels of PSA in the blood can be higher in men who have prostate cancer. The PSA level may also be elevated in other conditions that affect the prostate.

As a rule, the higher the PSA level in the blood, the more likely a prostate problem is present. But many factors, such as age and race, can affect PSA levels. Some prostate glands make more PSA than others.

PSA levels also can be affected by—

  • Certain medical procedures.
  • Certain medications.
  • An enlarged prostate.
  • A prostate infection.

Because many factors can affect PSA levels, your doctor is the best person to interpret your PSA test results. If the PSA test is abnormal, your doctor may recommend a biopsy to find out if you have prostate cancer.
