CINCINNATI – One local health care provider plans to travel across Greater Cincinnati to help ensure the complex needs of patients with heart disease are met.

The Heart Institute of Mercy Health has teamed with HealthFair to deliver affordable and convenient mobile heart screenings and extend Mercy Health’s network of care throughout the region. Screenings are available at convenient locations -- mostly grocery stores and pharmacies -- throughout the area each month.

HealthFair, a national leader in mobile screening services, offers several screening packages to test people for their risk of heart attack, stroke, aneurysm and other major diseases. Both Basic and Advanced packages are available depending on amount of testing patients request.

While insurance does not cover the tests, they are potentially reimbursable from a health savings account, depending on the insurance coverage, according to a release from Mercy Health. You’re asked to check with your provider if you have questions.

Individuals with abnormal results will receive follow-up directly from Mercy Health, ensuring they receive the right care from the right physician at the right time, according to the release.
