The PSA test for men will not be offered.

There is no cost for the screening for all full-time and regularly scheduled part time employees. Spouses are welcome to have a screening. The cost for all spouses is $50.00 and $40.00 for the diabetes test.

ADJUNCT INSTRUCTORS –You also may participate in the screening. The cost is $50.00 and $40.00 for the Diabetes test

REGISTRATION FOR BIOMETRIC SCREENING: Anyone who is planning to participate in the screening must register online. The website is http://register.wellness-inc.com. When you get to the website, you will need to enter in a Registration Key: Wa-87600-3. The information needed to register are: the last 4 digits of you SSN, your date of birth, first and last name, gender, address, phone number and email address (to receive a confirmation of your registration and a reminder email later on of your appt time). Then just follow the prompts through the process. It only takes a few minutes. Please do this ASAP so United knows how many people to plan for.

If you need any assistance maneuvering through the site, please feel free to contact Martha or me and we will be happy to walk you through it.

EMPLOYEES WITH UHC INSURANCE – computers will be available onsite to complete your online Health Risk Assessment. Completion of the HRA is necessary to receive the $75.00 incentive gift card from UHC. In order to do the HRA, you must be signed up on the MyUHC website. Please do that if you have not already done so. Go to http://myuhc.com sign up. Martha or I are happy to assist you with that if you are having any difficulty.

EMPLOYEES WHO DO NOT HAVE UHC INSURANCE – The Wellness Committee is developing criteria for you to also be able to receive a $75.00 incentive gift card, since the Health Risk Assessment is not available to you. Participation in the biometric screening will be one criterion, and the committee is determining the second criterion. More information on that to come.

I encourage you to take advantage of these health screenings. We've heard several comments over the years from employees who are better able to manage medical issues as a result of the screenings.
