What Is Capital Health Screening


One of the most important things you can do for your health is getting regular checkups. Nowadays, the medical industry has access to a wide range of tests that can help detect early signs of disease and illness. One such test is a capital health screening, which can help you understand more about your overall health and identify any potential issues.

Why Should I Get A Screening?

Capital Health Screening is a great way to check your health. It’s quick, easy and can be done at home by yourself or with the help of a doctor or nurse.

The Capital Health Screening program was created by Capital Health with the aim of providing every Nova Scotian with access to quality health care services that meet their needs, regardless of where they live or how much money they make.

What Happens During A Screening?

Capital Health Screening is a quick, painless process that takes place in the privacy of your own home. A small needle is used to take a tiny blood sample from your finger and send it to a lab for analysis. You will be contacted within 48 hours of your screening to discuss the results with one of our medical professionals who will help guide you through next steps if necessary.

What Are The Benefits?

A Capital Health Screening is an opportunity to get a full check-up. It will help you find out about any potential health problems, lifestyle changes that are needed, and lifestyle changes that can help.

You might be thinking “why bother?” or “I’m not in bad shape”. But there’s no harm in making sure everything is ok! You’ll feel better knowing there isn’t something lurking in the shadows waiting to bite you when you least expect it (or at all).

Is There Any Downside To Having Screening?

There are a few downsides to having a Capital Health Screening. First, it can be expensive. The cost of the test can vary depending on where you live and what kind of insurance plan or coverage you have, but in general it’s safe to say that it will cost anywhere between $50-$100 per screening.  Second, there is some time involved with getting results back from these tests: while some results are available within 24 hours others may take longer than that, upwards of 2-3 weeks depending on how busy they are processing them (and how long they’ve been waiting).  Thirdly, scheduling an appointment for your Capital Health Screening can take several days; although most facilities do their best to accommodate same day appointments whenever possible!


If you’re looking for a way to live healthier and longer, a Capital Health Screening is a great place to start. It can help identify any health concerns that may be affecting your life today or in the future, allowing you to take action before it’s too late. The best part? It doesn’t cost anything!
