ACHD is proud to announce that Blood Sugar Testing by
Glucometer can be done at the client's request.  The cost is
$15.  Stop by if you have blood sugar issues and let the nurses
check it for you.  
Audrain County Health Department is now able to provide
allergy injections to those patients that require them.  The
Health Department has received requests from physician
offices in Mexico and Columbia to provide this service.

This program will start August 25, 2014.  Audrain County
Health Department will need orders from the Allergist or
ENT that has prescribed the antigen.  The patient will need
to have an Epi Pen with them when receiving the antigen.  
Audrain County Health Department will not be responsible
for the antigen, the patient will need to bring the antigen
(in a cooler) for each visit.

At this time allergy injections will be by appointment
only on Monday’s and there will be a $15 administration
fee per visit. At this time the Health Department has
contracts to bill  the following insurance companies:   MO
Health Net; Health Care USA; Missouri Care Well Care;
MO State Health Plan; Anthem Blue Cross, Blue Shield;
Coventry; and Healthlink.  

For questions or to make an appointment, please call 573-
