Health Assessment Update

Reminder that you must complete your Health Assessment by December 5th. We just received the following from the City of Houston Benefits:

The December 5th deadline for completion of the health assessment is only 1 week away! This is the last chance to complete the health assessment in order to complete the first step towards earning up to a $900 medical rate discount.

Our most recent Health Assessment completion report (attached) indicates only 61% of City of Houston employees (with City medical benefits) and 40% of Covered Spouses have completed the annual Health Assessment.

REMEMBER! Employees and Spouses who do not complete the health assessment on will not be eligible to receive up to $900 medical rate discount beginning May 2017.

Two opportunities remain for Employees and Spouses to get their biometric numbers needed to complete the health assessment. Attend a Family Wellness Day on either of the below dates:

Family Wellness Day provides an opportunity for employees and spouses to complete the ENTIRE wellness program. Biometric screening, health assessment assistance, flu shots, nutrition coaching and more will be available.

Employees and spouses can also use their biometric numbers from their doctor to complete the health assessment. They will need: height, weight, blood pressure, waist circumference, total cholesterol and HDL cholesterol.
