Frequently Asked Questions

Who are BrookingsHeart screenings recommended for? 

BrookingsHeart cardiovascular screening is recommended for men ages 40 and older, women ages 45 and older, or individuals with a strong family history of heart disease.

What happens with my screening results?

Upon screening completion, an educator will review results with you. Education includes comparisons of your results to moderate or high-risk factors, stress management, physical activity, nutrition counseling and tobacco cessation if needed. Results will be given to you. It is your responsibility to initiate follow-up examination with your primary care provider to confirm the results and to obtain advice and treatment.

Will my insurance cover the screenings?

Because the screenings are not typically covered by insurance, you will need to pay out-of-pocket for the screenings.
