What to Expect

  • Screening staff will draw your blood, do a height and weight measurement, calculate your BMI, and take your blood pressure.
  • Staff will offer to measure your waist circumference. This measurement is optional. Visit the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute website for more information on what waist circumference and BMI tell you about    your health.
  • Health screenings are provided in a private, comfortable environment. If you have any concerns, please communicate them to the health screening staff when you check in.
  • Health screenings take about 20 minutes. 

Lab Tests

A Lipid Panel, Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP), and Complete Blood Count (CBC) are included in your State-sponsored health screening.

The following tests are not generally recommended for everyone, but may be included with your State-sponsored health screening IF you bring a prescription/doctors’ orders with you to your screening.

  • HgbA1C
  • PSA
  • TSH (thyroid test)

At the health centers ONLY - additional lab tests can be added if you bring a prescription/doctor's orders with you to your screening.

 

Health Screening DOs

  • Do drink plenty of water in the 24 hours prior to your screening.
  • Do take prescription medications as directed by your doctor.
  • Do wear clothing with loose fitting sleeves to the screening.
  • If you are diabetic or pregnant: Schedule your appointment earlier in the morning so fasting time does not extend late into the morning. If there is any reason why it may not be appropriate to fast, please contact your Health Plan for assistance. 
  • It is okay to brush your teeth prior to the screening.
  • Do take the results of your health screening to regular doctor’s appointments so that labs do not need to be repeated. This saves you and the plan money.
