Potential health risks aren’t always easy to see. That’s why it pays to take a closer look with a Numbers@Work health screening (offered at most locations in September and early October). Sign up now!
About the Screening
Your confidential onsite screening will measure your Body Mass Index (and/or waist circumference), blood pressure, cholesterol*, blood glucose and cardiorespiratory fitness, and include a free flu shot.
As with all your screening options, you’ll earn $50 for every healthy target you meet—up to a $250 credit toward your 2016 medical premiums. Just remember, you have to take the Health Risk Questionnaire this fall to receive your incentives.
What to Do
Reserve your spot now at ra.staywell.com. (Employees in Champaign and Richland Center should sign up through their local HR representative.)
You only need to fast if you want to receive your triglyceride and LDL cholesterol results. If you plan to take the cardiorespiratory step test, be sure to wear flat shoes and limit tobacco and caffeine intake.
If you can’t make an onsite screening—or if your location doesn’t offer onsite screenings—you can complete your screening:
- With your health care provider. Complete your screening using the health numbers your primary care provider collects during your 2015 physical. Write your numbers on the Health Care Provider Form and submit it to StayWell by Dec. 31. If you want to complete the cardio step test, just follow the instructions on the form.
- At home with the home test kit. Conduct your own blood test and cardio step test using StayWell’s home test kit. Call StayWell at 1.800.721.2696 to order your kit. Follow the instructions to complete the screening and mail the kit back to StayWell. Be sure to mail it early enough for StayWell to receive it by the Dec. 31 deadline.

* The screening measures your total cholesterol and HDL (“good” cholesterol) and total/HDL cholesterol ratio. If you fast for eight hours, it can also test your LDL (“bad” cholesterol) and triglycerides. Fasting is optional.
