Paying Your Medical Bills Just Got Easier

Introducing Navicure Payments

With the increasing number of high deductible health plans and more of the costs of medical care being transferred to you, the patient, we are implementing a new patient payments program starting in 2017. This will be a convenient way for you to pay your portion of your care. We want to work with you to make it easier and more financially suitable to pay your medical bills.

Prescription Drug Monitoring

THE STATISTICS

  • Misuse of prescription opioids, benzodiazepines, and stimulants is a serious public health problem in the US.

  • Every day, more than 1000 people are treated in the ER for opioid misuse, and more than 40 people die from opioid overdose. 
  • Between 1996 and 2013, the number of adults filling a benzodiazepine prescription increased 67%, while the quantity filled tripled. During this same time period, the overdose death rate more than quadrupled.
  • Between 2006 and 2011, stimulant use rose 67% and related ER visits went up 156%.

 

THE LAW

These statistics are startling, and in an effort to mitigate drug misuse, the government has increased regulations on physicians to promote more cautious and responsible prescribing. (See Georgia Administrative Code Rule 360-3-.06. Pain Management and Georgia House Bill 249 § 16-13-63. Prescription Drug Monitoring Program Data Base for more details.)

 

THE PROGRAM

Your physician has developed a program to help monitor your medication usage and ensure that your treatment regimen remains appropriate, safe, and effective.

We will be happy to speak with you to schedule your appointment and answer any questions that you may have.

We appreciate the opportunity to provide you with comprehensive primary care.

 

THE VISIT

  • 4 nurse visits per year - You will need to keep appointments with a nurse 4 times per year to continue receiving your prescriptions. 
  • Vitals - The nurse will take your vital signs and take you to an exam room. 
  • Urine drug screens - You will be asked to leave a urine specimen for analysis. 
  • Fill History - The nurse will pull a report from GA's Prescription Drug Monitoring Database. 
  • Your physician will review your results, and refills will be done based on your compliance with the treatment regimen. 

 

Flu Clinic

Flu season is fast approaching! Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine every season. Vaccination to prevent influenza is particularly important for people who are at high risk of serious complications from influenza. 
Because we know your time is valuable, we are hosting flu shot clinics to make your yearly vaccination quick and easy. This year's clinics are as follows:
                September 22 from 7AM to 11AM.
                September 29 from 7AM to 11AM.
As an additional benefit to our patients 65 and older, we are offering a new type of flu vaccine that helps create a stronger immune response to the vaccination, providing you with better protection from the flu.
