Healthy as a horse? Find out and save

We spend our days taking care of business, our families and our treasured Paint Horses. But when it comes to taking care of ourselves, that’s something we often put off until tomorrow. The vet’s on speed dial, but we can come up with a slew of reasons—too much time, money and hassle—to skip routine health screenings for ourselves.

We want you to enjoy your family, your Paints and, yes, even your work, for a long, long time. That’s why APHA partnered with Life Line Screening to create a unique APHA Xtras discount program just for our members. In a little more than an hour, you can get a health assessment and get back to doing what you love best. Here are a handful of reasons to stop procrastinating and take stock of your health today.

It’s Easy

Life Line Screening offers painless, non-invasive screening of risk factors for aortic aneurysms, carotid artery disease, atrial fibrillation and other chronic diseases that may lead to an increased risk for stroke, heart attack or other disability.

It’s Accurate

Their staff of healthcare professionals use the latest technology to provide hospital-quality preventive screenings. Board-certified physicians carefully review your results. Then you and your doctor will have the information you need to work together towards improving your health.

It’s Affordable

Choose from a wide variety of comprehensive screening packages at a discount. Get this baseline package with four screenings for only $135, plus osteoporosis for $10 more:

  • Stroke Warning Signs, Symptoms, Risk Factors, and Prevention
  • Atrial Fibrillation Screening
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening
  • Peripheral Arterial Disease Screening
  • Osteoporosis Screening/Bone Density Test

Or pick another health screening package that’s right for you.

Plus, Life Line Screening customers and their families can also take advantage of the Life Line Screening Rx Savings Program. This free prescription savings card guarantees you the lowest available price on the most popular generic and brand prescription drugs at 60,000 nationwide pharmacies. The average savings are 40% off the retail prices.

It’s Convenient
