Again this year, we are able to offer blood tests to H.U. staff AND students through Parkview Health Laboratories on Friday, March 28th. The tests will take place in the Nursing Department in the lower level of the Science Hall beginning at 7:00AM. Two times are available every 5 minutes.
The following tests can be scheduled:
Chem-17 – a blood test for various conditions such as, high blood sugar, cholesterol & potassium levels, etc. (test includes the lipid profile and glucose test)- $18.00
Hemogram test – checks for anemia, leukemia, or other blood abnormalities. – $8.00
TSH – checks for thyroid abnormalities – $20.00
CRP – a test to check for c-reactive protein which is produced by the body in response to inflammation, infection, and tissue injury. It can be helpful in predicting the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. – $20.00
Vitamin D – a test to determine calcium absorption for proper bone maintenance. – $35.00
Glyco (Hemoglobin) A1C – monitors the way the body uses glucose (blood sugar) over a period of time. – $20.00
PSA – blood test for prostate abnormalities or cancer in men. – $20.00
The tests require participants to fast for 12 hours prior to having their blood drawn. (You may continue all prescribed medication with sips of water, if necessary.)
For those insured on the Huntington University Group Medical Plan there will be no cost to you for the tests (this includes spouses and dependents age 18 and over who are on the HU medical plan). Our medical plan provides 100% coverage for these tests through the medical plan. Parkview offers the tests to you at a substantially discounted rate on this day. Utilizing the services in this manner will save the plan (HU) money versus having the labs drawn at a doctor’s office.
For those not insured on the Huntington University Group Medical Plan, the costs are shown above. Please be prepared to pay by cash or check (to Huntington University) at the time of the draw. Spouses are welcome to participate.
When making an appointment, specific information will be required in order for the Lab to prepare an identification label with two unique identifiers for each specimen. You will need to provide your legal first and last name, middle initial, date of birth and phone number. Also, indicate what tests you are taking.
Please email Pam Rudy (email@example.com) by the end of the day Friday March 14th 2014 to schedule an appointment time.
