PREVENT! Initial Risk Assessment and Delivery of Management Plan
CIMT/Arterial Plaque Burden Ultrasound included
Testing is an integral part of your comprehensive risk assessment. We minimize the number of tests ordered, starting with those that are foundational to everyone for an initial risk assessment. Most of the testing is covered by many insurance plans.
Tests covered by most insurance plans:
These labs (blood and urine samples) include advanced lipid testing, inflammation panels, cardiac-specific bio-markers, pre-diabetes evaluation, thyroid function, vitamin levels, electrolytes, liver function, and general labs such as kidney function and blood count.
We will provide orders and coordinate a convenient location for the necessary blood and urine collection.
The samples are sent to two labs, Cleveland Heart Lab (CHL) and Singulex. These two labs will submit a claim form to your insurance company for the labs they perform.
Become familiar with your individual insurance plan, as individual coverage does vary. Feel free to call the two labs ahead of time to discuss your insurance coverage of the tests. Cash fees are available for all laboratory testing.
