May and June are months to focus on Women’s and Men’s Health. Remember to stay on top of your health by getting your annual exams.
Regular health exams and tests can help find problems before they start. They also can help find problems early, when your chances for treatment and cure are better. By getting the right health services, screenings, and treatments, you are taking steps that help your chances for living a longer, healthier life. Your age, health and family history, lifestyle choices (i.e., what you eat, how active you are, whether you smoke), and other important factors affect how often and why you need healthcare.

Did You Know???
For work-related injuries, Treatment by unauthorized physicians in a non-emergency situation may be denied.
Marietta has a panel of physicians from whom injured employees can seek treatment. This list of physicians is posted as an “Official Notice” and placed in at least one prominent location on the premises (i.e., near time clock, in break room, etc.). This physician becomes the employee’s authorized treating physician (ATP). The ATP may arrange for any consultation, referral, or other specialized medical services required to treat the employee’s injury. If the employee becomes dissatisfied with the original choice from the panel, he or she may make one change to another panel physician (contact the claims adjuster).
In a true emergency situation, the nearest emergency location can be used, but only to the extent of the emergency. Follow-up treatment must be provided by an authorized panel physician.
