Tick-Borne Illness is on the rise
In recent years, the number of northeastern US counties identified as having a high incidence of Lyme disease has increased more than 320%.1 It’s important to protect yourself in the spring, summer, and early fall when ticks are most active. Many tick-borne illnesses can be treated if caught early. That’s why timely testing is so important.
The sooner you know if you have a tick-borne disease, the sooner your doctor can make the kind of healthcare decisions that can help you avoid some of the serious, long-term side effects of tick disease.
Understanding and managing your cardiac health
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States.1 That’s why your doctor recommends having your lipids tested to evaluate your cholesterol levels, and why we offer programs like Cardio IQ™ to help you understand and manage heart disease.
Cardio IQ can help you and your doctor more fully assess your risk after a cardio event. Armed with that knowledge, you can together make more informed decisions about treatment options.
And as part of Cardio IQ, you’re eligible for the free 4myheart® program, providing personalized support and education to help you achieve a more heart-healthy lifestyle.

Identifying prediabetes is the best defense against diabetes
Millions of people have prediabetes.2 Prediabetes is a condition where your blood sugar is higher than normal—but not yet high enough to be considered type 2 diabetes. Prediabetes often leads to type 2 diabetes and other serious health problems, including heart attack, stroke, and blindness. You can prevent prediabetes with even small changes in diet and exercise. Or, if you already have it, you can reverse it before it becomes full-blown diabetes.
Quest Diagnostics tests will help you and your doctor know where you stand.
Take control of your health with early detection.

CogniSense™ memory assessment makes it clear
Memory impairment can happen to anyone, and there is a range of causes, from head injury to the early signs of Alzheimer’s disease. It’s important to detect memory problems early, because timely intervention can make a difference.
Thanks to Quest Diagnostics, your doctor can now measure a new vital statistic—your cognitive score. CogniSense is an iPad®-based assessment—the first all-digital tool of its kind—that you take right in your doctor’s office to objectively assess the memory and other functions of your brain. CogniSense provides a baseline understanding of your memory status, so you and your doctor can make informed healthcare decisions sooner.
Hepatitis C can happen to anyone
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone born between 1945 and 1965 receive a one-time hepatitis C virus blood test.3 Because of the way sterilization of needles, inoculations, and transfusions were handled prior to 1985, you may have been exposed to hepatitis C unknowingly.
Testing by Quest Diagnostics can help you understand if you’re living with hepatitis C.
Knowing your status can help you and your doctor plan therapy sooner to avoid potential liver damage.

Control your costs
For most patients, Quest Diagnostics testing is in-network with their insurance and often costs less than getting testing at a hospital lab.
You may be able to save money on blood work by using Quest Diagnostics instead of an in-network hospital or an out-of-network lab*
Did you know that you could pay a different price for the same test based on where you get that test? It all rests on your health insurance. The first step is staying in-network. The second step is to learn if there’s a cost difference between an independent lab like Quest Diagnostics and a hospital lab.
In-Network Laboratories (like Quest)
Out-of-Network Labs and Hospitals
This is a representative example. Please check with your insurance company to see how much you can save when using Quest.
* The example is based on a patient who has already met their health insurance deductible. The “YOU PAY” costs are an example only, and are intended to encourage the reader to investigate their actual costs by reviewing their health plan benefits. Actual costs will vary.
** These costs show an example of a routine lab test. Lab test costs vary depending on the actual test performed. The percentage that you pay for a test at an in-network hospital laboratory may be the same or different from the percentage you pay for in-network laboratories
