Does biometric screening include drug test?

This answer was rated:

does biometric screening include drug test?
Generally - NO

Biometric screening typically looks at a number of risk factors for serious medical illness such as heart disease and diabetes.

Typically this looks at height/weight (obesity), blood pressure, cholesterol, smoking.

you mean, if i smoke on a regular basic? i don't, but I just want to be sure.

these are really aimed at "wellness" - preventable risk factors for diseases (which would likely run up your health care costs).
