Free Hemoglobin A1C, Estimated Average Glucose
Alaska Health Fair is proud to work with State of Alaska Department of Health and Social Services (SOA DHSS) to offer free A1C screenings and resources to those at risk of diabetes and prediabetes.
Are you at risk? Please take this short survey to find out.
To qualify for the free test, participants have to meet the following criteria:
- Have the ‘at-risk’ result on the Self-assessment survey that you have taken.
- Are not presently diagnosed with diabetes or prediabetes.
To claim your free test, please bring the completed survey to our office draw or event; or, fill out the survey on location. The survey is anonymous, and AHF uses it for statistics only. Blood testing is available to people 18 and older. Free testing is aimed at identifying people with undiagnosed diabetes or prediabetes. For people with known diabetes, please scroll down for information about health insurance coverage for regular testing.

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force published a new recommendation for doctors in late August to check for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes at younger ages. The task force recommends doctors screen adults ages 35 to 70 with overweight or obesity for prediabetes and diabetes once every three years. Ask your healthcare provider to screen for prediabetes. This testing is typically covered by insurance.
Alaska Health Fair is proud to work with SOA DHSS to offer these screenings to qualifying Alaskans regardless of insurance type.
Alaskans can refer adults with prediabetes to free or low-cost diabetes prevention programs, which are offered in-person, over the phone, or online in Alaska.
The free online or phone programs include:
- Omada Health, a diabetes prevention program provided online.
