At the upcoming AAO Annual Session in Chicago, Blue APPLe Health will offer its health screening package on-site. Services will be available to orthodontists, orthodontic staff members, and attendees’ family members.
Screening hours will be from 9:30 AM until 5 PM Saturday, May 14, Sunday, May 15 and Monday, May 16. Depending on demand, additional hours may be added on May 17. The screenings will take place in the McCormick Place – West Building. The providers will attempt to accommodate walk-in requests for service, but appointments are recommended.
Everyone registering for the screening service will be required to pay the $149 screening package cost in advance by credit card. If necessary, registrants can cancel appointments as little as 72 hours in advance for a full refund. Blue APPLe does not file insurance claims, bill insurance companies, or provide referrals to physicians or hospitals.
The testing package will include echocardiogram screening, EKG, cardiac risk assessment, carotid artery ultrasound screening, abdominal aortic aneurysm screening, blood pressure reading, body mass index testing, osteoporosis screening, total cholesterol and HDL blood tests, and diabetes screening.
All tests are performed for screening purposes only. Those who are screened are encouraged to share their results, whether normal or abnormal, with their individual physicians.
