By being proactive about your health, you are taking steps towards living a longer, healthier life. Health screenings can make you more aware and help you understand your health needs. They also can help uncover health concerns early, while you have the opportunity for prevention or treatment. The health screening is free for health plan participants and 50% covered for non-health plan participants. You will have the opportunity to meet with the registered nurse at the onsite health clinic to go over your numbers together. After the health screening is complete, your results will be available at the onsite clinic for you to pick up. Thanks!
Your screening will include: blood pressure, height/weight, and a blood draw. The blood panel will include the lipid panel, comprehensive metabolic panel, CBC panel.
Being a fasting blood draw, avoid all food and beverages 10-12 hours before your appointment. Only water is acceptable, and you are encouraged to drink plenty as it will help your blood draw go smoothly. Consult your physician if you have questions about fasting and your medications. It’s best to avoid all alcohol and caffeine 48 hours prior to the screening. Please wear lightweight clothing with sleeves that can be easily rolled up, a short-sleeved top works best.
Results may be picked up at the Schuette Metals Clinic once they’re available. Thank you.
