Time is running out to attend a free biometric screening and earn 10 HealthQuest credits

Submitted by Human Capital Services - Benefits

Sign up for a free biometric screening appointment between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. Sept. 17-18 in 138 Peters Recreation Center. Future dates will be forthcoming. A biometric screening is necessary to complete the online health assessment questionnaire, which is required to be eligible for discounted premiums on health insurance.

HealthQuest is a program provided to reduce your premium and obtain a healthier lifestyle. In addition to the free biometric screenings, employees have the opportunity to receive assistance to stop tobacco use, obtain lifestyle coaching and participate in wellness challenges that are fun and interactive relating to specific health behaviors. 

These free screenings are one of three ways to get your biometric information. There are two other choices — a well check up to your physician or an at home test.

The Biometric Screening results and completion of the online Health Assessment Questionnaire are required and worth 10 of the total 30 credits needed by Nov. 15 to receive the discounted premium for plan year (calendar) 2016. Biometric screening results, the online Health Assessment Questionnaire, and any additional credits you earn throughout this period must be manually entered into the portal at www.KansasHealthQuest.com.

Read complete information on this portion of the requirement. Contact benefits@k-state.edu for further questions.
