Raystown Imaging Signs with Geisinger Health Plan
As of July 1, 2009, Huntingdon County residents with the Geisinger Health Plan will now be able to have their radiologic imaging covered when using J.C. Blair’s Radiology Services. Raystown Imaging and Radiologists Dr. Maria Pettinger and Dr. Frank Pessolano approved the new contract in July. This action creates new options for Huntingdon County residents who previously could not have the professional services component of their imaging studies covered by their Geisinger plan, even though the hospital component was covered. Both the Geisinger Health Plan and Geisinger Gold Medicare insurance plan are included in the new contract.
“We are pleased to finally offer full coverage for radiology services to the patients in Huntingdon County who are insured with Geisinger,” said Raystown Imaging President Dr. Maria Pettinger.
Under the direction of a board certified radiologist, J.C. Blair’s Radiology Department offers a full complement of diagnostic services in one convenient location. All staff is fully credentialed to perform the diagnostic services. Services include: PET/CT scanning, CT scanning, MRI, ultrasound, mammography, nuclear medicine, general radiology/x-ray, GI Studies, and DEXA bone densitometry.
“The new MRI scanner will be fully operational in September. Look for information and invitation to an open house September 22. In the next year, we will also be upgrading Nuclear Medicine and Mammography,” Pettinger said.
