Allcheck To Hold Health Fair In June

Allcheck Medical Clinic, Sidney, in conjunction with Billings Clinic Laboratory Services will be holding their first health fair of 2023, on Wednesday, June 14, 6 a.m.-1 p.m. Their previous health fair was in December 2022.

Allcheck Medical Clinic tries to do two health fairs a year, with one in the spring and the other in the fall. The first one was held in January 2022.

As before, participants come to Allcheck Medical Clinic on the day of the event and register with Billings Clinic Laboratory Services staff at the front desk. The testing is walk-in with no appointment needed. There they can choose any number of the 12 different blood tests running in price from the Complete Blood Count at $15 to the Women’s Hormone Panel at $90 with a blood pressure taken for free.

Participants will be escorted to the drive-thru garage and seated in one of the blood draw chairs they will have for the event where the amount of blood needed for the selected tests will be drawn.

The blood will be taken back to Billings Clinic Laboratory Services, where it will be tested for different markers that may indicate a health concern or disease. The results are sent directly to the participant, and they are responsible for getting them to their primary care provider. All the tests are fasting, meaning that the participant must refrain from eating any food starting at midnight before the Health Fair. They may drink water and take their medications.

Allcheck Medical Clinic owner, Janette McCollum said, “The health fairs are to benefit individuals in the community” and “It’s such a great cost saver through Billings Clinic Laboratory Services.” Due to the cost of each test being so low, health insurance will not cover the tests.

Allcheck Medical Clinic Primary Care Facility opened in June 2021. They are located at 223 N. Central Ave., Sidney. They can be contacted by phone at 406-488-5500 for regular appointments.
