Can About My Health Meet My Business’s Drug Testing Needs?

Q: I own a small business with only three employees. I have been searching for a place to handle the drug screening of my employees. I have heard good things about About My Health, and I would like to know more about your company. What types of drug screening do you offer? Which type of testing is best for my needs? I need to have my employees screened randomly to help keep my insurance rates down, as well as to protect the best interest of my business. Accuracy of test results is a must, as well as an easy testing process. Is About My Health able to meet my testing needs?

A: Hi, and thank you for your interest in testing with us. We offer various types of drug testing for businesses. The most common form of testing is with a urine analysis, and there are multiple panels available. Most people opt for the five-panel urine screen, which checks for amphetamines, marijuana, cocaine, opiates, and PCP. If you have a specific concern or your employees have access to prescription medications you might consider a more extensive panel.

Hair follicle testing can cost more than urine testing, but it does cut down on adulterated specimens and can offer a 3 month window of detection. Depending on your concerns one test may be better than the other. Our counselors can discuss your concerns, help you decide which tests to use, and offer a volume-based pricing plan for your account. If you have any questions or would like more information please do not hesitate to let us know.
