Folate, RBC is primarily ordered to help evaluate megaloblastic and macrocytic anemia and sometimes can also be ordered with Vitamin B12.

Folate (B9), B12, and other tests may be ordered to help evaluate the health and nutritional status of a patient with signs of significant malnutrition or malabsorption.
