Insured team members and their dependents, 18 years and older, are invited
to participate in the 2016 Health Risk Assessment (HRA), Biometric Analysis
(BA), and Tobacco-Free initiatives. These initiatives are in continuation
of our Health System’s commitment to the health and wellness of
its team members, their families and the community.
This year, we will be transitioning from the “Know Your Numbers”
campaign of years past to a more evolved outcome-based rewards system.
Please refer to the
Health Risk Assessment FAQ
for a summary of the indicators and their corresponding incentives.
While the HRA is an online questionnaire, the BA and cotinine screening
will require physical presence at one of the designated areas. Please
refer to the
Online Health Risk Assessment Instructions
for the screening schedule. In order to manage the large number of affected
individuals, it will be necessary to test team members and covered dependents
If you have completed a fasting lipid panel (LDL, HDL, total cholesterol,
and triglycerides) and fasting blood glucose test in the last six months,
please bring a copy of the said result to the health fair or your one-on-one
meeting to avoid re-testing. You will also need to provide proof of positive
identification and your health insurance card.
Team members and all of their covered dependents, 18 years and older,
will need to complete both the online HRA and BA on or before November
13, 2016. In order to be eligible for the discount program on your health
insurance premium for 2017, the BA must be completed by November 13, 2016
as the rewards system will be based solely on the results of the BA testing
process. In order to avoid a tobacco surcharge of $25 per pay period for
2017, you and all covered dependents 18 years and older will be required
to successfully complete the cotinine screening process on or before November
13, 2016. For those active nicotine users, the Health System offers a
free four-week long tobacco cessation program. Tobacco surcharges will
be suspended if and when the cessation program is successfully completed.
For additional information or to enroll in the cessation program, please
