About NiaHealth
We are a team of health care professionals and entrepreneurs passionate about helping people live healthier lives, longer.

What is NiaHealth?

In recent years, led by thought leaders such as Peter Attia, Andrew Huberman, Mark Hyman, and David Sinclair, among others, a movement has accelerated around proactive health. NiaHealth aspires to translate the core tenets of this movement into practice by becoming the world’s leading, virtual-first, proactive health partner. We start by offering comprehensive blood testing, personalized health analytics and tailored recommendations to reduce the most pressing threats to your healthspan. We will soon be incorporating other diagnostics such as VO2 Max, DEXA scans, genetics, among others.

How we differ from traditional primary care

NiaHealth uses a proactive approach to health and wellness compared to the reactive nature of traditional primary care.
consult
  1. Comprehensiveness of our blood panel: Overall our panel is 2-3 times more comprehensive  than a traditional primary care panel
  2. Interpretation of results: We have developed a robust evidence base to support optimal ranges for key biomarkers. This allows us to flag issues much earlier and allow our patients to change health trajectories well before they become symptomatic.
  3. Non-pharmacotherapy recommendations: Our recommendations are not founded in pharmaceutical intervention but rather in key actions you can take around your health across exercise, nutrition, sleep, emotional health, as well as key cancer screening protocols based on your age and gender. While we will recommend discussing certain medications with your family physician if warranted, we aim to change the trajectory of disease early enough that pharmacotherapy is a last resort.

Frequently Asked Questions

Coverage & Insurance

Are NiaHealth services covered by my insurance plan?

NiaHealth’s services are not covered under public/government health insurance plans in Canada. However, our service is an HSA-eligible expense (in addition to CRA-eligible medical expense), but it is recommended that you check with your insurer first. You should review the terms of your private health insurance plan or consult with your insurance plan provider to determine if NiaHealth’s service is eligible for reimbursement under your private health insurance plan or any other supplemental benefits.

Are NiaHealth services HSA-eligible & CRA-eligible medical expenses?

Yes - our service is HSA-eligible and CRA-eligible medical expenses, but it is recommended that you check with your individual insurer if our services can be covered under any of your other supplemental benefits.

Are my results going to be shared with my insurance company?

No - we take data privacy and security very seriously. Your results are for your eyes only and will be handled in keeping with our privacy policy.

Service Differentiation and Information

Why is NiaHealth different than my regular family doctor / primary care provider?
  • NiaHealth includes 3-4x more lab tests than your average annual checkup in Canada. This includes heart, thyroid, metabolic, kidneys, liver, nutrients and more. See a list of all biomarkers we test for here.
  • We also use the most up-to-date, evidence-based reference ranges customized to your healthspan and longevity.
  • Our reports go well beyond your average 15 minute checkup and provide you with a level of insight and actionable recommendations that empowers you to take your health to the next level. See more about our products here.
Which biomarkers are covered in the blood test?

Our Basic offering includes the top 35 biomarkers related to your health and longevity, whereas our Essential and Plus offerings include a more comprehensive panel of 50 biomarkers. See biomarker comparison by plan here. These biomarkers provide insights into your cardiovascular health, liver function, kidney function, blood glucose levels, and various essential vitamins and minerals. Hormonal biomarkers are an add-on and can be selected at checkout. The hormonal biomarker panel is an add-on that can be selected upon checkout for $65 CAD. You can read more about each biomarker here.

Do I need a requisition to order a test?

NiaHealth provides a requisition that you will use so you don’t need to worry about this.

Medication, Treatment, and Logistics

Does NiaHealth prescribe medications?

No - we do not prescribe medication. However, we do provide, where applicable, suggestions. For interventions (including medications and supplements), we include a note of suggestions that you can discuss with your current medical team. Prescriptions are left to their discretion.

I have an existing illness or condition. Can you help treat it?

We offer advice to enhance your current health state, emphasizing prevention through exercise, nutrition, sleep, and emotional well-being but not medical management of existing illness. If we discover any incidental health issues, we provide suggestions for discussion with your primary care provider. While our suggestions impact overall health and various chronic conditions, comprehensive medical management of existing illnesses remains the responsibility of your current medical team.

What are my options for getting a blood draw?

Our standard pricing includes a blood draw in the comfort of your home or office via one of our licensed phlebotomists; this visit usually takes no longer than 15 minutes. If you are in Ontario, you can save $100 by going into any one of our partner lab locations.

Do I need to fast?

It is required that you fast for 8-12 hours for most tests. For this reason, we recommend that you plan for a morning test. For more information regarding our blood collection methods, click here.
