Vituro Health Announces Medicare Elite Access Program for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., April 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Vituro Health has created the Medicare Elite Access (MEA) program to allow enhanced access for prostate cancer patients to the most experienced HIFU physicians in the United States. This program expands Vituro Health's already robust Insurance Reimbursement Assistance (IRA) program.  The MEA program is designed to connect a Medicare patient with a Vituro trained HIFU physician and assist the patient with all reimbursement opportunities.  According to Dr. Stephen Scionti, Medical Director of Vituro Health, "HIFU offers patients a greater quality of life by significantly lowering the side effects of erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence, and now HIFU will be more affordable for Medicare patients with prostate cancer. When performed by an experienced physician, prostate ablation with HIFU offers better preservation of quality of life than radical treatments and is an ideal treatment for many Medicare patients." Medicare created a C-code in July of 2017 for the facility costs of HIFU treatment and in recent months has begun reimbursing in certain regions of the United States.  C-codes are unique temporary pricing codes established by CMS that apply only to the hospital outpatient setting and the ambulatory surgery center setting. The C-code does not apply to physician services or the specialty services provided by the Vituro Health Patient Care Team.  The Care Team will assist patients in locating the most experienced HIFU physicians in regions where Medicare reimbursement is possible, ensuring the lowest out-of-pocket costs to the patient. "Medicare acknowledges the value of access to HIFU for patients diagnosed with prostate cancer.  With the new technologies available, all men should begin testing and diagnosing for prostate cancer at age 40 and above. We can now treat patients that qualify with a non-invasive, radiation free treatment that drastically reduces the common side effects of traditional treatments," says Clete Walker CEO of Vituro Health. The MEA program complements the IRA program that has already successfully helped many Vituro patients with commercial insurance achieve reimbursement for their HIFU procedure. Additionally, Cigna Health recently announced that HIFU will now be covered for patients who have recurrent prostate cancer after radiation therapy.  These patients require careful evaluation by a HIFU specialist to determine if they are eligible for salvage (post- radiation) HIFU but CIGNA patients can now expect that their salvage HIFU procedure can be covered. The Vituro Health Patient Care Team is committed to helping patients who are good candidates for HIFU maximize opportunities for reimbursement while minimizing out-of-pocket costs. The IRA program is provided free of charge to Vituro patients. Vituro Health Centers of Excellence are staffed by skilled and experienced HIFU physicians, serve patients from all 50 states and has become a medical tourism destination for patients around the globe. To locate a member of our experienced HIFU Medical team or learn more information about HIFU and reimbursement, please visit or call our Elite Access Line at 866-4-VITURO (8488876). About Vituro Health Vituro Health empowers men with comprehensive prostate care during all stages of their lives. We arm partner physicians with HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) technology and other patient-centric, concierge services to elevate the standard of care and patient experiences. Vituro Health serves patients worldwide and is headquartered in Birmingham, Ala., with Centers of Excellence in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia and Washington, DC.  The Vituro Health Physicians Network are carefully selected based on their depth of experience, expertise and dedication to achieving the highest levels of patient outcomes.

Finance Attitude - 8	Key Things to Look For in Dividend Stocks
A stock dividend is the dividend payout that is made to the investors in form of additional shares instead of cash payouts. Most dividend stocks yield a higher percentage of return on average compared to treasury bonds and conventional bank savings annually from their payouts. However, dividend stocks payouts can change significantly at an impulse and in turn, changes your value of investments. Therefore, if you desire to invest in dividend stocks, you need to be very selective.  
Finance Attitude - 4 Common Types of Orders when Trading in Stocks
4 Common Types of Orders when Trading in Stocks
It is important for every stock investor to know the different types of orders in the stock market and when it is appropriate to apply them especially when you want to sell or buy stocks through a brokerage firm. Trade orders are instructions that are given to brokers to buy or sell a stock. All trades must have two orders which consist of an order to get into the trade or the buy order and an order to exit the trade or the sell order. Here are the 4 common types of orders to make trade in the stock market. 1.    Market Orders A market order is one of the most basic types of stock market orders. A market order is an order that instructs the broker to sell or to buy at the best price that is currently available and at the time the order reaches the market. This type of order is executed immediately and you are guaranteed to get the trade filled (transacted) at the ask price as that is the price another trader is willing to sell at. There is, however, a possibility of a costly slippage but can be resolved by using only market orders that have good liquidity. Market orders cannot be accepted outside of the market hours given or when a particular stock is suspended. A market order is mostly preferred by the long-term investors because it is cheaper and the decision of making the investment is based on fundamentals that will happen over months and years and the market price is not much of an issue. 2.    Limit Orders A limit order is an order to buy or to sell a stock at a specified price or at a better price. A buy limit order can only be executed at the specified limit price or at a lower price. A sell limit order will be executed at the specified limit price or at a higher price. With a limit order, you just don’t press the buy or the sell button but you must specify a price. Limits order advantage is that it prevents slippage. 3.    Stop Loss Orders A stop-loss order otherwise called stop order, stopped market, no-stop buy or on-stop sell is an instruction placed with your broker to sell shares that you hold if the share price falls to a specified price. A stop-loss order is different from the limit and market orders where the order is executed immediately as the stop-loss order remains dormant or is put on hold until a certain price is passed. 4.    Conditional Orders Conditional orders are executed only if a certain set of conditions are met. Different brokers have different conditions and you can gather more information on their websites or they can explain to you how they manage these types of orders upon request. Find out if there is an expiry date of the orders placed if the specified conditions are not met and the brokerage fees that would apply to you if you place the trade. There are instances when all or none of these orders apply for example when investing in penny stocks. An all or none order ensures that you either get the entire stock that you requested for or none at all. An order can be active or can be placed on a time restriction of “good -till- canceled”. This means that the order will remain active until when you decide to cancel it. If you don’t specify the exact time limit or time frame of expiry, the order is set as a trading day order. If the trading day ends and your order is still not transacted, then the order expires but you can still re-enter it or make it active on the following trading day.
