Many physicians and healthcare providers recommend that patients receive routing blood screening to monitor health, check medication effectiveness or monitor blood sugar levels.

Unfortunately, for many patients, the cost of these screenings isn’t covered by insurance … or deductibles and co-pays make it unaffordable. King’s Daughters is pleased to provide a lower cost alternative for these patients: The Low-Cost Blood Profile Screening and Vascular Disease Screening programs.

The screenings will be offered beginning at 7 a.m. Friday, Aug. 19 at King’s Daughters Center for Advanced Imaging, 2225 Central Ave., Ashland.

  • The Low-Cost Blood Profile includes a complete blood count; comprehensive metabolic panel; lipid profile (LDL, HDL, total cholesterol and triglycerides); and thyroid stimulating hormone levels. Total cost for the battery of tests is just $25. No appointment is needed, but fasting is required. Hours are 7 to 11 a.m.
  • King’s Daughters also is also making the A1C screening test, which monitors blood sugar levels over a period of time, available for just $5. Participation in the LCBP is not required for the A1C testing.
  • The Vascular Disease Screening consists of an ultrasound exam of the carotid arteries, which supply blood to the brain; an ultrasound of the abdominal aorta, which supplies blood to the lower half of the body; and an ankle-brachial index study, which looks for decreased blood flow to the legs and feet. Total cost for the vascular screening is $80. Appointments are required and are available beginning at 7 a.m. Please call 1-888-377-KDMC to schedule.
Cash, checks and credit cards are welcome. Insurance cannot be billed for the screenings. For more information about the tests, results reporting to check availability on other dates or locations, please visit
