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

Conquer that overactive bladder


By Kimberly A. Harris, RN, MSN, FNP

If you suffer from a frequent need to urinate, strong sudden urges to urinate and/or urinary leakage as a result of urgency, we can help you.

These symptoms are often associated with a condition called Overactive Bladder (OAB) with or without urge incontinence. With Overactive Bladder, the nerves that supply sensation to the bladder and surrounding muscles do not always communicate effectively with the brain. Patients will experience bladder spasms which cause sudden sensations associated with the need to urinate. These spasms can occur multiple times daily or even hourly.

Multiple treatment options for OAB and urge incontinence are available to our patients in the form of medication, physical therapy, APEX M, Botox, Thermiva and Urgent PC.

Donít suffer

OAB and urge incontinence can have a great effect on a womanís life. Some women report severe fatigue as a result of frequent nighttime urination. Others limit their fluid intake to avoid frequent trips to the bathroom. In severe cases, women are afraid to leave their house for fear of leaking urine, or will have to wear pads or diapers to avoid accidents.
