If your insurance does not fully cover health screenings don’t fret because Costco members can get one for free at select Costco pharmacies on special days. Screenings rotate and include: Osteoporosis screening, Healthy Heart screening, Lung Health screening, and Diabetes screening.

So what does a screening test involve?
The Osteoporosis screening uses Ultrasound technology to assess one’s risk for this condition.

The Healthy Heart screening offers a risk assessment for heart disease, a lipid-stick profile test, and a blood pressure check.

The Lung Health screening uses a spirometer to identify those at risk of COPD at the pre-symptomatic stage.

The Diabetes screening uses an A1c test. This is a measure of your average blood sugar over the previous 3 months. This test requires only a small amount of blood and no fasting.
