What is Fair Price?

The Fair Price is the price that you should reasonably expect a medical service to cost if you shop for care. Even in-network providers can have big cost differences for the exact same service. The most expensive can cost more than five times as much as providers that charge a Fair Price.

The Fair Price is calculated from actual amounts health plans have paid on claims. Some services show ?bundled? pricing, which means there are multiple parts to the Fair Price. These usually include facility, physician and anesthesiologist fees, and can be viewed individually in the Fair Price Details. It?s always a good idea to request a price estimate from the provider and compare it to the Fair Price before your procedure.

The information on this website is not a price guarantee. There is no guarantee that any specific provider will charge a specific rate or that specific services will be covered under your benefit plan.

Free PSA ( Prostate Specific Antigen )

Prostate specific antigen (PSA) is a protein produced primarily by cells in the prostate, a small gland in males that encircles the urethra and produces a fluid that makes up part of semen. Most of the PSA that the prostate produces is released into this fluid, but small amounts of it are also released into the blood. PSA exists in two main forms in the blood: complexed (cPSA, bound to other proteins) and free (fPSA, not bound). The most frequently used PSA test is the total PSA, which measures the sum of cPSA and fPSA in the blood.

The PSA test may be used as a tumor marker to screen for and to monitor prostate cancer. The goal of screening is to detect prostate cancer while it is still confined to the prostate. However, most experts agree that screening should be done on asymptomatic men only after thorough discussions with their healthcare practitioners on the benefits and risks and after informed decisions are made to undergo screening. Elevated blood levels of PSA are associated with prostate cancer, but they may also be seen with inflammation of the prostate (prostatitis) and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). PSA levels tend to increase in all men as they age, and men of African American heritage may have levels that are higher than other men, even at earlier ages.

PSA is not diagnostic of cancer. The gold standard for identifying prostate cancer is the prostate biopsy, collecting small samples of prostate tissue and identifying abnormal cells under the microscope. An elevated PSA may be followed by a biopsy, which has risk of complications such as pain, fever, blood in the urine, or urinary tract infection. (Read the article on Anatomic Pathology for more information on biopsies.) The total PSA test and digital rectal exam (DRE) are used together to help determine the need for a prostate biopsy.

Once the presence of prostate cancer is confirmed by biopsy, another decision must be made with regard to treatment. Prostate cancer is relatively common in men as they age and many, if not most, of the tumors are very slow-growing. While prostate cancer is the number two cause of cancer death in men, the slow-growing type is an uncommon cause of death and may never cause symptoms. A pathologist may be able to help differentiate between slow-growing cases and cancers that are likely to grow aggressively and spread to other parts of the body (metastasize).

Over-diagnosis and over-treatment of prostate cancer are issues with which health practitioners are currently grappling. In some cases, the treatment can be worse than the cancer, with the potential for causing significant side effects such as incontinence and erectile dysfunction. The PSA test and DRE cannot, in general, predict the course of a person?s disease. The free PSA test is sometimes used to help determine if a biopsy should be done when the total PSA is only slightly elevated

Why To Test

To screen for prostate cancer, to help determine the necessity for a biopsy of the prostate, to monitor the effectiveness of treatment for prostate cancer, and/or to detect recurrence of prostate cancer

view more

When To Test

When you have symptoms suggestive of prostate cancer such as difficult, painful, and/or frequent urination; may also be ordered during and at regular intervals after prostate cancer treatment; in asymptomatic men, after a discussion with your healthcare practitioner about the benefits and harms of screening (For specific details, see prostate cancer screening for Adults and Adults 50 and Up).

common uses

The PSA test and digital rectal exam (DRE) may be used to screen both asymptomatic and symptomatic men for prostate cancer. PSA exists in two forms in the blood: free (fPSA, not bound) and complexed (cPSA, bound to other proteins). Lab tests can measure fPSA or total PSA (cPSA plus fPSA).

Most organizations, including the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, the American Cancer Society, and the American Urological Association, recommend that men discuss the advantages and disadvantages of PSA-based screening for prostate cancer with their healthcare practitioner before making an informed decision about whether to be screened or not.

The total PSA test can be elevated temporarily for a variety of reasons. If an initial PSA is elevated, another PSA test may be done a few weeks after the first to determine if the PSA is still elevated. If the repeat test is elevated, a healthcare practitioner may recommend that a series of PSA tests be done over time to determine whether the level goes down, stays elevated at about the same level, or continues to increase. In cases where the cancer appears to be slow-growing, the healthcare practitioner and patient may decide to monitor its progress rather than pursue immediate treatment (called "watchful waiting" or "active surveillance").

If the DRE is normal but the PSA is moderately elevated, a free PSA test may be used to look at the ratio of free to total PSA. This can help to distinguish between prostate cancer and other non-cancer causes of elevated PSA.

If prostate cancer is diagnosed, the total PSA test may be used as a monitoring tool to help determine the effectiveness of treatment. It may also be ordered at regular intervals after treatment to detect recurrence of the cancer. The PSA test and digital rectal exam (DRE) may be used to screen both asymptomatic and symptomatic men for prostate cancer. PSA exists in two forms in the blood: free (fPSA, not bound) and complexed (cPSA, bound to other proteins). Lab tests can measure fPSA or total PSA (cPSA plus fPSA).

preparation before

Avoid ejaculation for 24 hours before sample collection as it has been associated with elevated PSA levels; avoid rigorous physical activity like bike riding; certain medications and herbal supplements can also affect PSA levels so be sure to tell your healthcare practitioner about any of these you are currently taking; the sample should be collected prior to your healthcare practitioner performing a digital rectal exam (DRE) and prior to (or several weeks after) a prostate biopsy as both of these can elevate PSA levels

benefits

On average, free PSA testing can reduce the need for 20 percent of unnecessary biopsies. It also can help determine if there's a greater likelihood you have prostate cancer. If your results suggest that you may have prostate cancer, you'll still need a biopsy to confirm the prostate cancer diagnosis.

risks

A high total PSA level and a low free PSA level generally indicate a risk for prostate cancer. Free PSA ranges can vary, but in general, a higher ratio of free PSA to total PSA is healthie
