Home Test Kits

At-home screening kits are available to those who do not have access to a biometric screening event in their area.  A test kit is mailed to your home upon request.  You collect your own blood sample through a simple finger stick test and return your sample in a self-addressed, stamped envelope.  Your results are automatically loaded within 15 business days of returning your sample.

PLEASE NOTE: The at-home test kit does not include results for blood pressure, height, weight, and waist circumference.

To order a Home Test Kit, visit the Kansas Wellness Portal. Choose the Home Kit Option. You are not able to order a Home  Test Kit if you already have an appointment for an onsite screening event.
