Study Summary

Members of CVS/Aetna will receive one of two text messages or receive no text message at all. In the available for members condition, participants will receive a text message that says, "Two common kidney tests have been made available for members. By taking them, you could stay ahead of any problems and keep enjoying life. Schedule a doctor visit today to ask about them." In the Checked Health condition, the message will say, "Have you checked your kidney health recently? By taking two common kidney tests, members can stay ahead of any problems and keep enjoying life. Schedule a doctor visit today to ask about them." There will also be a group of members that do not receive a text message at all.
