Health Screening Information and Costs for non-eligible participants (non benefits eligible employees, spouses, children 18 and older)

BIOMETRIC SCREENING

 

The following biometric measurements will be taken: height, weight, blood pressure and body composition. We also will provide a venous blood draw testing fasting blood glucose and full lipid panel. For the most accurate results, please adhere to the guidelines above. We recommend wearing short sleeves to facilitate the blood draw.

To ensure the most accurate results, follow these guidelines:

  1. Prior to your appointment, fast for 12 hours (no gum, mints, candy, coffee, soda pop, etc.), and abstain from alcohol for 24 hours.
  2. Be sure to drink plenty of water.
  3. Take prescription medication as directed.

If you take medication with food or anything besides water, please do not take that medication until after your screening or consult with your physician.
  4. Wear light-weight clothing if you prefer your waist circumference be taken over clothing.

 


All test results remain confidential. If you have any questions/concerns, please call Jill Williams at 319-398-5640.
