Ask.Screen.Know. is a program that encourages people to find out if they are at risk of diabetes after taking a simple Diabetes Risk Factor Assessment on www.askscreenknow.com that takes less than 10 seconds. Depending on the results, you should then talk to your doctor and get screened for diabetes.

Taking charge of your health couldn’t be any easier, and older adults enrolled in Medicare may be eligible for a free diabetes screening. In honor of Diabetes Awareness Month in November, all adults are encouraged to visit www.askscreenknow.com to find out if they are at risk, and learn more about the free Medicare screening benefit.
