Medicare Preventive Services Help You Live

by James Heller 26. February 2014 10:57
As we approach and arrive at our senior years, we begin to understand why doctors always told us to take better care of our health.  Prevention is something we hear about all of our lives, and only a small percentage of us really take it seriously.  The good news is that many age-related health issues can be improved and avoided with preventive care services covered by Medicare.
 
 
Better health can always be found through exercise and an improved diet, of course.  There are other issues, though, that are not so easy to control.  It’s much more dangerous for seniors to get the flu, life events can cause depression, and smoking or earlier substance abuse can lead to a whole list of related health problems.  Preventive screenings, counseling, vaccinations, and lab tests help to diagnose or treat potential health risks before they become serious problems.

Using available preventive services improves your health, which leads to other benefits.  Your golden years should be spent enjoying life, so better health means fewer visits to care providers.  You have better things to do.  Just a wellness exam and flu shot will keep the doctor away for a while.  Good health means a more active lifestyle and less reliance on others to get around, as well.  So, preventive care really does give you more joy and freedom in life.

Tarzana Treatment Centers provides Medicare preventive care services at our Primary Care Clinics. We offer a wide variety of the covered services so you can experience that joy and freedom.  We look forward to seeing you soon.  Here is an alphabetical list:
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening
  • Alcohol Misuse Screening and Behavioral counseling Intervention in Primary Care
  • Annual Wellness Visit (Including Personalized Prevention Plan Services)
  • Bone Mass Measurements
  • Cancer Screenings
    • Breast Cancer (mammograms and clinical breast exam)
    • Cervical and Vaginal Cancer (pap test and pelvic)
    • Colorectal Cancer
    • Prostate (PSA blood test and Digital Rectal Exam)
  • Cardiovascular Disease Screening
  • Depression Screening in Adults
  • Diabetes Screening
  • Diabetes Self-Management Training
  • Glaucoma Screening
  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Screening
  • Immunizations (Seasonal Influenza, Pneumococcal, and Hepatitis B)
  • Initial Preventive Physical Examination - “Welcome to Medicare” Preventive Visit
  • Intensive Behavioral Therapy for Cardiovascular Disease
  • Intensive Behavioral Therapy for Obesity
  • Medical Nutrition Therapy (for beneficiaries with diabetes or renal disease)
  • Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) Screening 
  • High-Intensity Behavioral Counseling (HIBC) to prevent STIs
  • Tobacco-Use Cessation Counseling

New to Medicare?

by James Heller 17. January 2013 11:38
One thing never seems to change with Medicare.  Every year, a lot of people become eligible for this insurance coverage, and many of them become very confused.  What is Medicare? What is covered? Where do I go for medical care?
The information is all online and on brochures from the government, but it’s the rare individual who reads it all.  So Tarzana Treatment Centers will help to get you started with ease.
 
 
In case you didn’t know, we provide integrated health care services, which means that you can get medical, mental health, and substance use services at our locations.  Many of the services we provide are covered by Medicare plans, and Medi-Cal in case you are eligible for both programs.  The great benefit of coming to our clinics for medical care is that you won’t need to be referred out if you have mental health or substance use disorders.

Maybe the best recent news is that we provide the new Medicare Preventive services.  These services are designed to help you maintain good health, and to enable early treatment of problems that may arise.  These services include flu shots, smoking cessation, and screenings for cardiovascular problems, diabetes, or HIV, among many others.  And, as we mentioned above, we can quickly treat you for any medical or mental health needs that are discovered.

Tarzana Treatment Centers invites you to contact us for information about your covered Medicare plan services and an appointment.  We can get you started with preventive services, and help you to plan for your future health care needs.

Holiday Health Considerations

by James Heller 9. October 2012 10:26
The holidays are not far off, so we suggest that you plan ahead to ensure they are joyful.  Don’t be the person who gets treated after the good times are over.  You should take care of your health now, because this time of year brings tension, celebration, and reunions that require good physical and mental condition.
 
 
For most, it’s a time of joy and family, gatherings, food, drinks, gifts, and seasonal entertainment.  Others may not engage in the festivities, but it is difficult for them to completely escape the collateral effect of all that is going on.  And, while it is mostly a time of merriment, there are aspects of the holiday season that are very unhealthy for some individuals.  

Tensions rise as we lead in to November and December due to financial issues, relationships or lack thereof, lost loves and those who’ve passed on, and other factors.  These can be minor issues, and don’t affect most people.  When they add up for one person, though, and they have a heart condition, are a senior, in recovery, or already under pressure, anxiety can get out of control.  Even worse, it can actually cause a heart attack or stroke.

Those who engage in alcohol or drug abuse tend to binge during the holidays, either for celebration or as a result of the tensions mentioned above.  Individuals in recovery are vulnerable to relapse at this time of year as well.  They may ruin parties, anger loved ones, break things, and, worst of all, cause an accident while driving.  Too many holiday parties, that were otherwise enjoyable, end in tragedy due to alcohol and drug abuse.

Tarzana Treatment Centers wishes you and your loved ones a wonderful holiday season.  To that aim, we are suggesting preventative care so that you may enjoy them to the fullest.  We want you to come see us before the tension rises and alcohol consumption increases, rather than when mounting health problems force you to see us after.

We provide preventative screenings at our clinics, including annual check-ups, cardio-pulmonary exams, and flu shots.  Seniors can get many of these preventative services under Medicare coverage.  For our friends suffering from substance abuse and addiction disorders, we can help with medical detoxification, residential and outpatient treatment, and Vivitrol treatment for alcohol or opiate craving reduction.  Our mental health treatment services are available for minor to severe disorders.

Please think ahead this year.  You will have a much better holiday season if you take a little time to prevent health problems.  Better yet, you will start a good habit for the new year.

Medicare Preventative Services at Tarzana Treatment Centers

by James Heller 24. September 2012 08:49
Medicare covers preventative care services that can help you to live healthier and happier in your senior years.  Better yet, you can choose the provider for any of these health care services at any time.  Tarzana Treatment Centers invites you to consider our clinics in the San Fernando and Antelope Valleys for these services.
 
 
Preventative care is a broad term describing health care services that are meant to help you avoid problems in the future.  Medicare covers annual office visits, screenings, flu shots, and other preventative services.  The list of services and detailed information can be found on this Guide to Medicare’s Preventive Services.

Since screenings are meant to confirm or eliminate the existence of some form of ailment, your preventative care provider is an important choice.  You want to be sure that your provider can treat you or quickly refer you for treatment in the event of a positive test result.  Your health deserves your focused attention, and we can make that convenient.

Tarzana Treatment Centers is a health care integration provider.  Patients who come to our clinics know that they will receive more than just quality medical care.  They are also comforted with the knowledge that we provide mental health, substance use, and HIV treatment services, along with many other services.

We hope that your preventative care finds you and keeps you in good health.  It is our goal, though, to be prepared to provide you with the best treatment you can get when you need it.  So we provide a wide array of health care services using the latest methods and technology.  You can be certain that your physical and mental health is in good hands at Tarzana Treatment Centers.
