  • Staff will offer to measure your waist circumference. This measurement is optional. Visit the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute website for more information on what waist circumference and BMI tell you about your health.
  • Health screenings are provided in a private, comfortable environment. If you have any concerns, please communicate them to the health screening staff when you check in
  • Health screenings take about 20 minutes

Lab Tests

NEW FOR 2017 - Additional Tests
The following tests are not generally recommended for everyone, but may be provided at your health screening if you bring a prescription from your doctor.  This applies for ALL plan members (including Medicare-eligible retirees).

  • HbA1c 
  • PSA (PSA's are no longer generally recommended as a preventive test.)
  • Thyroid
  • At the health centers ONLY - additional lab (blood) tests can be added to a health screening if you bring a prescription with you to your screening.  

Health Screening DOs

  • Do drink plenty of water 24 hours prior to your screening.
  • Do take prescription medications as directed by your doctor.
  • Do wear clothing with loose fitting sleeves to the screening.
  • If you are diabetic: Schedule your appointment earlier in the morning so fasting time does not extend late into the morning.
  • It is okay to brush your teeth prior to the screening.
  • Do take the results of your health screening to regular doctor’s appointments so that labs do not need to be repeated. This saves you and the plan money.

Health Screening DON’TS

  • Don’t eat or drink food or beverages other than water and black coffee 10 hours prior to your screening.
  • Don’t exercise strenuously 10 hours prior to your screening.
