Women's Health

 

HMOs earn high marks for checking women of certain ages for breast, cervical and colorectal cancer. Finding these cancers early is key to preventing serious illness or death. Quality HMOs send screening reminders to women, make it easy to get screening tests and help doctors to teach members the value of cancer screening. The best HMOs and their doctors communicate with patients about common health risks - like sexually transmitted disease in younger, sexually active women - and test those patients who are more likely to get such infections like Chlamydia.
