Main St. Quincy Lighting Carpets Blinds Wood Flooring Hours: Open Wed-Sun, 9:30AM - 4PM PDH health fair scheduled to begin Oct. 6 Over 20 years ago, Plumas District Hospital introduced a semi- annual low-cost health fair. Community members have lined up by the hundreds to take advantage of the inexpensive health screening. Since the beginning, health fair participants have paid $50 (cash) for a series of lab tests that would normally cost over $600 if billed to their insurance company. The very low price helps patients managing chronic conditions to keep up on important monitoring. Despite volunteers lending a hand, for the past several years the hospital has struggled to even cover the costs associated with the event. During the most recent health fair, in spring 2014, patients were asked if they would like their test results to be entered into their electronic medical record (EMR). Over 74 percent said yes. Including results in the EMR is a win for patients and their doctors. Even so, the new process adds to the overall expense of the event. The hospital's EMR requires comprehensive training, eliminating the likelihood of a volunteer performing that duty. With all these factors in mind, leaders have determined that the more health fair tests PDH performs at $50, the higher the financial impact. Health fair organizers have gone back to the drawing board to fmd a way for PDH to continue to provide this valuable service, without it being a f'mancial drain. They have arrived at a new pricing schedule to offset losses. The cost for,the comprehensive blood screening during the October event will be $75. Prostate cancer screening will be $25, and bone density tests will remain at $50. blood sugar screenings will be offered for free -- funded by a grant award from UnitedHealthcare Group. The PDH fall low-cost health screening will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m. beginning Monday, Oct. 6, and running through Thursday, Oct. 9, in the North Fork Family Medicine Building on Valley View Road behind the hospital in Quincy. More information about the fall low-cost health screening is available at 283-5640.
