Hemoglobin A1c screening
Detect and monitor your diabetes
A hemoglobin A1c screening may be covered under your health plan at $0 out-of-pocket. Also called an A1c or HbA1c test, it examines the average of blood glucose (or sugar) levels over several weeks to identify prediabetes and diabetes status. If you currently have diabetes, it gives insight into long-term blood sugar levels so you and your care team can best manage your condition.
About your hemoglobin A1c screening
The hemoglobin A1c is a routine lab test that involves a blood draw from your arm or a finger prick. It is not a test for post-meal or daily blood glucose levels. The test may require fasting.
