2) Cough into your elbow, help direct the germs that might be present away from your hands or someone else.
3) If you cough or sneeze into a tissue and after contact with others wash your hands or use a good hand sanitizer.

While Pershing Health System is always excited to see the community take an opportunity to improve their health and is glad to see the promotion of health screenings, we would like to remind the community to be cautious when not using their family physician or known local health care provider.  Around our area there has been an increase in non-local mobile clinics who offer health care screenings for a price.  These clinics ask for payment up front, charging for tests that are covered through Medicare B or personal insurance when ordered by a patient’s physician or nurse practitioner.  Unsure what is covered?  The Medicare website (www.medicare.gov) provides good information on which preventive procedures are covered and who is considered an at risk patient.

 

Through Medicare B:Osteoporosis screenings (Bone Density) are covered every 24 months(more if medically necessary) for at risk patients.  (By the way, Pershing offers a complete Bone Density measurement which includes measurement of both hips and lower back which provides a more thorough screening than a foot measurement.)

 

Cervical and Vaginal Cancer screenings are covered every 24 months or once every 12 months for high risk patients.  (Includes Pap test collection, pelvic and breast exam.)   Mammogram Screenings are covered 100% for women over 40 every 12 months.  Prostate Cancer Screenings through a PSA blood test is covered for men over 50 every 12 months.  Colorectal Cancer Screenings through Fecal occult blood tests are covered every 12 months for patients over 50.  Diabetes screenings are covered two times a year depending on risk factors.  Nutrition therapy services with a registered dietician or nutrition professional are covered. Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm screenings, Stroke / Carotid Arterial screenings, and Peripheral Arterial disease screenings are covered for at risk patients.  Cardiovascular disease screenings including blood tests for cholesterol, lipids, and triglycerides are covered every 5 years. A "Welcome to Medicare" and Yearly Preventive Wellness Exam are covered.  Flu shots, Hepatitis B shots, and Pneumococcal shots are covered.

 

PHS wants to make our community aware that we also provide these tests, but we differ from mobile clinics in that we file health insurance, send the results to the family provider, and follow up with the patient to provide a full circle of care.  Pershing cares about the health of our neighbors, friends, and family and is here for the community 24/7/365.  Our clinics are open a variety of hours including nights and weekends and offer walk in appointments.  We also offer many different services within the hospital such as Emergency Services, Swing Bed, Radiology, Laboratory, Respiratory, Rehabilitation, and Outpatient Specialty clinics.  (See www.pershinghealthsystem.com for a complete list.)  Take care of your health and your wallet by learning what’s covered so you don’t over pay.  Also, while most of this pertains to Medicare B, many personal insurances offer wellness plans that would cover these tests too.  If you have any questions, give us a call 660-258-2222!
