It’s Time for the
2017 HCCMCA Alaska
Fall Health Fairs

Welcome to the HCCMCA Fall Health Fairs! Each year, Health Care Cost Management Corporation of Alaska (HCCMCA), also known as “the Coalition”, sponsors Health Fairs throughout the state of Alaska. These events give eligible, covered plan participants and family members easy access to preventive care health screening tests, including flu shots, blood screening, prostate-specific antigen testing, thyroid testing and vitamin D testing.

  • Pre-Registration is REQUIRED at ALL locations
  • Admission is free
  • Bring your family


Comprehensive Lab Tests Available at the Health Fair

The Health Fair offers comprehensive lab tests, which includes four preventive care blood tests, to adults age 18 and over. Screenings like these can help you learn about your health and detect potential problems early.

Comprehensive lab tests include:

  • Chemistry/Hematology Profile (includes A1C): This screens the kidney function, liver enzymes, electrolyte (salt) imbalance, diabetes, tissue disease or damage, coronary heart disease and more.
    • We recommend that you fast for 12 hours before this test. This means you should have no food or drink (including coffee) except water. Please drink plenty of water. Dehydration is the main cause of difficulties with blood draws. People with diabetes should NOT fast. In all cases, prescription medication should be taken.
  • Thyroid Screen: You should have the Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) screen if you have a family history of thyroid problems, are a female over age 45, or are experiencing unexplained weight loss or gain, depression, memory loss or have a swollen thyroid.
  • Prostate Disease Screen (PSA): Men should have this test annually starting at age 50. African-American men and men with a family history of prostate cancer should start screening at age 40.
  • Vitamin D Screening: Vitamin D deficiency increases risk of heart disease, and is also linked to high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity. Screening is recommended for older adults, smokers, and people suffering from high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, kidney or liver disease, or heart disease.

All tests are paid 100% by your health plan.

Flu Shots Also Available at the Health Fair

  • Flu shots: Flu shots are available for health plan participants age 9 and older.

All flu shots are paid 100% by the health fair sponsor, HCCMCA.
