While you may think to call the doctor to run tests when you’re not feeling well, it’s easier than ever to test yourself for concerns like sexually transmitted infections (STIs), the flu, and diabetes from your own home. And Simple HealthKit is making these tests available at Walmart to provide accessible, affordable healthcare.
Simple HealthKit was founded with the goal of making healthcare more affordable and accessible for those with and without insurance, and you can now find the brand’s Common STD test, Common Respiratory Wellness test, and Diabetes test at Walmart.
The Common STD test can diagnose chlamydia, gonorrhea, and trichomoniasis. The Common Respiratory Wellness test can detect flu A, flu B, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). The Diabetes test can determine levels of HbA1c, a marker for type 2 diabetes.
All Simple HealthKit tests come with the equipment needed for collecting your sample and a pre-paid expedited USPS return label to ship your test to the lab. You’ll also get access to the Simple HealthKit online portal, where your results will be posted 24 to 48 hours after the lab receives your sample.
If you test positive for an STI, respiratory disease, or diabetes, Simple HealthKit will follow up and help you obtain any medications you may need, at no additional cost. You also have the option of reviewing your test results and seeking treatment from your primary care provider.
Simple HealthKit’s labs are FDA- registered, CLIA-certified, and CAP-accredited. This means the labs have been vetted and approved by the Food and Drug Administration and the College of American Pathologists, and meet regulations set by the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments to give you accurate and reliable results.
Reviewers say they love how easy the equipment is to use and how convenient it is to test in the privacy of your home. If you’re looking to save a trip to the doctor’s or want the privacy of testing at home, give Simple HealthKit a try.
