HS-Omega-3 - June, 2010

HealthCheckUSA is pleased to announce a new partnership with OmegaQuant which will allow our customers to take advantage of a new test, HS-Omega-3 Index. The HS-Omega-3 Index lets you know if you have enough of the heart-healthy omega-3's in your diet. Even people who have ideal cholesterol levels or blood pressure can still have very un-healthy omega-3 scores. It's important to know your personal HS-Omega-3 Index levels to control your heart risk by altering your diet or taking fish oil supplements to achieve cardio-protective omega-3 levels. When asked about the new partnership, Dr. Bill Harris of OmegaQuant said, "I am tremendously excited to partner with HealthCheckUSA to provide the HS-Omega-3 Index test directly to thousands of consumers who will now be able to determine for themselves how much omega-3 they need to take in order to achieve cardioprotective blood levels."

2008

San Antonio Express News - July 15, 2008 - "Doctors Can Help Keep Costs Down".

"Lab tests can cost hundreds of dollars. Again, with some thought and research, there are ways to save. For instance, for patients who are paying for their own blood work, we use HealthCheckUSA, a nationwide company that offers discounts of up to 50 percent (or more). A complete health profile blood test that runs $530 elsewhere costs $200 at HealthCheck.

We also save by running all basic tests before the physical. That way, we have the test results in hand for the appointment, saving both time and the expense of a follow-up visit to review test results.."
