Life Line Screening: What You Need To Know Before You Book

Share with Friends

As Jack, my husband, approaches 60 this year, he knew it was time to start taking his health more seriously. I know there are not always symptoms that are obvious right before a stroke or the development of cardiovascular disease, so we discussed ways for us to be tested. Life Line Screening was an easy choice with a non-invasive, affordable procedure that would help detect many issues that we were concerned about. The CDC offers some sobering statistics.

This is a sponsored post with Life Line Screening. All opinions are 100% my own.

According to the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death for men, women, and people of most racial and ethnic groups in the United States. One person dies every 36 seconds in the United State from cardiovascular disease. About 655,000 Americans die from heart disease each year—that’s 1 in every 4 deaths.


Why We Chose Life Line Screening

Life Line Screening offers an easy solution if you are looking for convenience and a fair price for this preventative testing. Most doctors do not suggest that you do screenings for a carotid artery or peripheral arterial disease screening if you do not display any symptoms or have a family history. However, for our family, prevention is more important than ever.  

Life Line Screening offers an early detection system that offers benefits to folks looking for accurate results and recommendations regarding matters of their health. The reason this is so important is early intervention can mean that you will avoid surgery or a life-threatening event.

  • Early detection of serious health conditions that may otherwise go unknown without testing.
  • Prevention of disease progression with early detection.
  • Peace of mind so you can enjoy life knowing where you stand.
  • Savings with more affordable screenings than going to your doctor or the hospital.
  • Control, no insurance required so you can choose the screenings that you feel are most important to your health.

IMPORTANT NOTE: In response to COVID-19, Lifeline is taking precautions to protect its customers and employees by following all CDC, state and local guidelines for cleanliness, personal protective equipment and social distancing. Masks are required for everyone; appointments are limited, and temperatures are taken prior to entering a facility.

Life Line Screening Saves Lives

One of the most important things I learned about Life Line Screening was how many lives have been saved from folks being proactive. Life Line Screening has been in business since 1993, answering the need for low-cost, community-based screening. They offer extensive quality control procedures. Life Line has made side-by-side comparisons to hospital vascular labs.  

In doing my research, there were several important tests that they offer. The most popular test package, seen below, costs $149.

Life Line Screening’s package includes five core screenings that you can order today.

  • Ultrasound of the carotid arteries looking for fatty plaque blockages that can build up and block blood flow to the brain.
  • Ultrasound of the abdominal aorta to look for an aneurysm, a ballooning or stretching of the aorta, the largest artery in the body.
  • A check for Atrial Fibrillation (Afib), the most common type of heart rhythm problem. This is also a stroke risk factor. When the heart doesn’t beat properly, blood can pool in the heart. Eventually, these clots are pumped out, where they can travel to the brain and cause a stroke.
  • Peripheral Arterial Disease Screening, which is a check for blockages in the small arteries of the ankles and feet. Blockages here are a warning sign for blockages in other arteries, including the arteries of the heart.***
  • A test for Osteoporosis Risk. This involves an ultrasound of the shinbone (tibia).

Life Line Screening also offers finger-stick blood tests for cholesterol, glucose, a1c, c-Reactive Protein, Thyroid function and more.

Life Line Staff

There are screening sites in every major city in the United States representing around 13,000 locations throughout the year. Teams at the screening sites include at least two ultrasound stenographers who hold certificates in ultrasound technology and two medical assistants who are cross-trained to perform tests, including electrocardiograms for heart rhythm, fingerstick blood tests, and peripheral pulses.

There may also be a nurse practitioner available to see people 65+ years old for Annual Wellness Visits, which are covered under Medicare.

What Happens At a Life Line Screening Appointment?

We arrived for our appointment as Tropical Storm Eta was taking her second approach towards Florida. Through wind and rain, I was going to make it to our appointment! I made sure we were a little early as I wanted to observe how Life Line Screening set up their operations.

As we entered the building a friendly tech came to let us know that she would begin calling people by their appointment time. There was already another couple waiting. Everyone working was wearing masks and made sure that chairs and exam areas were appropriately spaced. Once we were called for our intake our temps were taken. I felt very comfortable with the setup and the staff.

We entered each station and had our tests performed. We were glad to know we could get some initial test results that day. Our tech who performed the test came over to go over our results. The good news we both were at optimal or near-optimal on all of our initial test results.

Our Life Line Test Results

We were in an out in less than an hour! But you should plan on being there for around 90 minutes. We should have our final results in the next few weeks. Most importantly, we now have the peace of mind that we are not on the brink of anything serious. Our healthy lifestyle has been paying off!

Be sure to watch this testimonial before you go!

    I didn’t know this was a resource. There is a history of heart issues on both sides of my family. In fact, my dad underwent a quadruple bypass surgery a little over a year ago. My mom is on cholesterol medication and I think it would be prudent of her to get this testing done. Thanks for the information.
