Cigna Update

 

It has come to our attention that our Cigna-insured patients may have received a letter stating MAWC will be out of network as of Nov. 1, 2021. We are indeed in active negotiations with Cigna, which we hope to wrap up soon.

In addition, while we are undergoing negotiations with Cigna, it is essential to note that MAWC continues to be a participating provider with Cigna. We will immediately communicate with our patients if this changes.

You can help by calling Cigna at the number indicated in the letter to let them know how much you value MAWC as part of the network.

Thank you so much for being patient as we work with Cigna to continue delivering the unsurpassed healthcare excellence you are accustomed to with Mid-Atlantic Women's Care.

Healthy Tips

We hope your New Year's Resolutions include this important check list


By Kimberly A. Harris, RN, MSN, FNP

If you’ve made any New Year’s Resolutions or To Do lists for 2017, we hope they include the following:

An annual Gyn exam to check your breasts, cervix, uterus and ovaries. Cervical cancer is PREVENTABLE, however each year thousands of women in the U.S. died from it.
   
An annual screening for sexually transmitted diseases for women who may be at risk. The screening can reveal asymptomatic infections and prevent progression to a severe illness leading to spread of disease, hospitalization, infertility and even death.
   
An annual screening for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia for all sexually active women under the age of 24.
   
An annual mammogram for women over 40 to help screen for signs of breast cancer, which cause tens of thousands of deaths in the U.S. each year. Early diagnosis and treatment results in excellent survival rates.
   
An annual physical exam and appropriate laboratory screenings with your primary care provider. Adults over 20 should have diabetes and cholesterol screening performed. The frequency of these tests depends on the associated risk factors.
   
A colonoscopy if age 50+ to screen for signs of colon cancer. Early diagnosis and treatment provides the best chances for survival.
   
A bone density test if you are post-menopausal, have had a fracture, have thyroid disease or rhuematoid arthritis, have a family history of osteoporosis.

We hope your 2017 is full of great happiness and health.
