How do I lower my risk of getting dysplasia and cervical cancer?
Women can lower their risk of cervical dysplasia by avoiding high-risk sexual activity associated with the HPV infection, such as multiple sex partners and sexual activity at an early age. If you’re sexually active, it is recommended that you use condoms. If used correctly and at every sexual encounter, you can reduce your risk of HPV infection up to 70 percent. Regardless of whether you’re sexually active, screening for cervical dysplasia should begin at age 21.
What is an OB pre-pay, and what is included?
Due to the rising costs of healthcare, we attempt to calculate the amount that we expect you will owe once your pregnancy is billed to insurance. This amount, in most cases, is based on a patient’s coinsurance and not on their deductible unless there is a particularly high deductible involved. We ask that this portion be paid in advance of delivery to help reduce the financial burden on our patients post delivery. This pre-pay is only based on the global fee for pregnancy and does not include services billed separately by our offices or the hospital where you deliver. Separately billed services will be billed along the way, and you be asked to pay those balances in addition to the pre-pay. Any portion you may owe above and beyond your pre-pay will be billed to you once we’ve heard back from your insurance. Since we aren’t calculating most pre-pays based on deductibles, if your deductible has not been met by the time you deliver, you should expect to receive a bill.
