Be a Wellness Winner
Submit your biometric screening information and get a reward!
We all know that health care costs continue to rise, but it doesn’t have to be a no-win situation. You can
win at wellness by taking preventive steps, including participating in a biometric screening.
The screening helps you understand your health risk for chronic conditions and provides your numbers
Body mass index (BMI).
Screening information is valid from November 1, 2011, to November 1, 2012. If you have had a biometric
screening with your health-care provider since November 1, 2011, you or your provider can complete the
Health Care Provider Biometric Screening Form and fax it to Vivacity. To access the form, please visit
www.wcif.net/wellness.html under “Employees”. This form is also located on the Live Well at WCIF
wellness portal. If you have not received your biometric screening, you should contact your health care
provider to schedule the screening.
Get Healthy, Get Rewarded
The Washington Counties Insurance Fund (WCIF) will offer you a $150 deductible credit in 2013 when
you submit your biometric screening information, input your numbers into a confidential online Health Risk
Assessment (HRA), and certify that you have been tobacco-free for the past 12 months or commit to
quitting in 2013. All three steps must be completed by November 1, 2012.
Concerned about the privacy of your personal health information? There’s no need. None of your health
information will be shared with WCIF, your employer, or anyone else. WCIF will receive only combined,
anonymous reports that help us know where to best focus our wellness program efforts. WCIF will be
notified that you completed your screening so you can get credit for your reward.
If you haven’t completed a biometric screening, take time to call your health care provider and schedule
one today. Not only will you be eligible for a reward, you’ll also be taking control of your health, which
helps improve your well-being and reduces health care costs. And that’s a win-win for everyone.
