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.

  • Don’t eat or drink food or beverages other than water and black coffee 12 hours prior to your screening.
  • Don’t exercise strenuously 12 hours prior to your screening.
  • If you cannot attend your scheduled appointment for any reason, please be courteous and cancel your appointment as soon as you know you won't be able to make it.
  • Please do not schedule multiple appointments.
