After a successful trial run last spring, the Local 49 Health and Welfare Fund has an agreement with Health Gauge to provide free health screenings to Health Fund plan participants and their spouses who are eligible for benefits. The screenings will take place at mobile-clinic-style events hosted at or near union halls throughout Local 49’s territory.
Screening events are currently scheduled in December and January.
Appointments are required.
Book your free appointment today at iuoe49.hgscreenings.com or by calling 515-244-3080.
Eligible participants can receive:
- Comprehensive blood analysis
- Body mass index test
- Diabetes test
- Carotid artery ultrasound
- Abdominal aortic aneurysm screening
- Peripheral arterial disease screening
Men over the age of 40 will receive a PSA blood test, and women will receive thyroid testing. All participants will receive the A1C test.
The tests you choose to have performed are not meant to replace your physician, but are meant to improve communication with your physician at your next appointment.
