  • Please note that the Living in Distinguished powerpoint is under our documents section to the right for your viewing pleasure!!
  • A directive by the state of Pennsylvania issued October 5, 2015 now requires 3D mammograms to be covered by insurance under existing law. 

    What is it: A 3D Mammogram (Tomosynthesis) is similar to a regular mammogram, except the x ray device moves around the breast, taking x rays at various angles to create a 3D image. While it may not be necessary in all cases, it does provide a better image for those women with dense breast tissue. The members treating physician will decide what type of mammogram is needed based on the members clinical condition and medical necessity. 

    When it is effective: Effective 10-5-15, it will be covered under the members benefit plan, the same as standard mammograms. Note: Over the next coming months, our preventative schedules and medical policies will be amended to reflect that change. 

    Where to get  3D Mammogram: The members physician, if prescribing a 3D mammogram, will direct them to a facility that has such capability. Some providers such as Excela, the Wexford Health Pavilion, Mon Valley Hospital, to name a few have been marketing via print and TV Ads their capabilities for 3D Mammograms. 

  • To figure out if your retroactive pay is correct, subtract your salary from last year from this years salary, divide that by 24 then multiply by 4.

  • Please check your November 13th pay stubs. Multiply your regular teaching pay X 24 to get your total to check on the salary scale for the new contract!!!
