What to Do After Your Numbers@Work Health Screening

If you’ve completed your Numbers@Work health screening, congratulations!! You’ve taken an important step toward good health, and you’re closer to earning up to $450 off your 2015 medical premiums!

Here’s what to do next:

  1. Celebrate! You’ve gained valuable information about your health, which is key to getting or staying healthy! And chances are you earned incentives based on your results—$50 for each healthy target you reached for weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, blood glucose and cardiorespiratory fitness.*  (StayWell reports that most employees met three out of five targets last year.) But even if you didn’t meet a healthy target, you at least know where to focus your energy to improve your health and numbers going forward. That’s a good thing.
  2. Talk to your doctor. Share your results with your primary care provider (PCP)—especially if you didn’t hit a healthy target. The main purpose of the health screening is to protect your health over the long term. Your PCP can partner with you to accomplish that.
  3. Complete the HRQ. To receive any incentives for your health screening results, you must take the Health Risk Questionnaire (HRQ) during Annual Enrollment (Oct. 25 – Nov. 16). In fact, the HRQ is so essential to understanding your overall health that it is required this year. If you don’t complete the HRQ, you’ll pay an additional $100 on your 2015 medical premiums, and you won’t earn any incentives for the other activities. To make it easier for you, after your screening, StayWell automatically populates your results in the HRQ so it’s ready for you during Annual Enrollment.
  4. Take action! If you missed a healthy target, or simply want to improve your numbers, consider a Take Action activity. According to StayWell, employees who completed two or more Take Action activities were most likely to improve their screening numbers. That makes sense. Our Take Action activities focus on physical activity, nutrition and health coaching—all of which can have a tremendous impact on your overall health. Plus, you can earn incentives for participating.
