Health Screenings

The Montana Health Centers can perform your annual health screening. These will be performed as directed by your Health Plan Live Life Well Incentive program. For State of Montana plan members: A State-sponsored health screening includes measurements as described below at a Montana Health Center or off-site event. A State-sponsored health screening is a benefit for ALL plan members (including Medicare-eligible retirees) once per incentive period. All personal information is kept in the strictest confidence.

Appointments are required and attendees must follow the guidelines listed under "What to Expect," below, due to COVID-19 restrictions.  Please schedule now to ensure you get the date and time you prefer and to ensure staff have sufficient time to prepare for your appointment and sanitize before the next person.

*With the transition to Premise Health, there are important changes you need to be aware of to make your appointment and ensure your visit to the health center runs smoothly.

If you cannot attend your scheduled appointment for any reason, please be courteous and cancel your appointment as soon as you know you won’t be able to make it. Please do not schedule multiple appointments.

You may also call (855) 200-6822 for assistance with registering.

What to Expect

  • All patients coming to an off-site health screening event will be asked COVID screening questions and have their temperature taken. If you have contact with anyone with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 and/or are running a temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or greater, PLEASE do not attend the health screening. Contact Premise Health so your appointment can be rescheduled. Answer the COVID screening questions honestly. They are in place to reduce exposure and allow us to continue the health screening events.
  • Patients must bring their own face mask and wear it into the screening location. If you cannot gain access to a face mask, please let the health center know prior to arriving for your appointment.
  • Only patients will be allowed to enter the screening site - family members or other guests will not be permitted if not necessary.
  • Waiting areas are limited to 2-3 patients at one time. If more than 3 patients are waiting to be seen, excess patients will be requested to wait in another location until their turn. Once inside the off-site screening event, please remember to maintain at least 6 feet of distance from others if possible.
  • Screening staff will draw your blood, do a height and weight measurement, and take your blood pressure.
  • You may request that staff 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.
