A Biometric Screening is a health assessment performed by Student and Employee Health Services (SEHS) that gathers information in certain areas, such as your key lifestyle factors, gender-specific issues and clinical measurements. The health assessment is then sent to Onlife, who analyzes your answers to find factors that may lead to health issues, concerns and risks that you can easily prevent. Onlife then provides an online health coach to provide personalized assistance for achieving wellness goals such as losing weight, quitting smoking, improving nutrition, increasing physical activity or dealing with chronic health problems like diabetes or high blood pressure.
- Current Employees
Employees who are enrolled in the UA health plan, and who complete the two steps below by September 30, 2017, will receive a $1,400.00 reduction in their out-of-pocket maximum cost in 2018. If employees have family on their insurance plan the reduction is $2,800.00. UAMS EMPLOYEE ID BADGE REQUIRED.
- New Employees
New employees who are enrolled in the medical plan after July 31, 2017, will automatically receive the wellness reward, but will need to participate next summer in order to receive the reward going forward.
- Employee Spouses
The screenings only apply to employees who carry the UA health plan as the primary member/policy holder. Spouses and children, even if they work for the University, are not eligible for the screening.
How to “Get Your Numbers” (Complete a Biometric Screening)
- Step 1: “Get Your Numbers” at a Biometric Screening
Biometric health screenings will be offered by UAMS Student and Employee Health Services (SEHS) starting July 31, 2017 and ending September 30, 2017. Additional screenings will be held throughout the state for employees who don’t work on the main campus. The screening will take about 20-30 minutes. You may want to allow more time in case there is a line as screenings are done on a first come, first served basis.
The Screening includes:
- Blood Pressure
- Blood Sugar
- Body Mass Index (BMI)
Alternative way to “Get Your Numbers”
As an alternative to getting your numbers at a screening, you may instead schedule a visit with your in-network primary care physician. Log into Onlife to the form you will need to take with you to that appointment. Your physician will provide the numbers on this form you will need to take with you to that appointment. Your physician will provide the numbers on this form, then you will send it to Onlife. If the only reason for this visit is to secure this form and the office visit is coded as a physical/wellness visit, there is no cost to you. The blood work must be between the dates of May 1, 2017 and September 30, 2017 to be accepted.
