Healthy Futures: The Health Assessment

Learn Your Risks

 

Note: If you cover a spouse or domestic partner on your 2013-14 medical plan, this step will need to be completed by your covered spouse/domestic partner as well.
 
Once you’ve logged into the MyOEBB system and indicate you choose to participate in the Healthy Futures program, the next step is to complete your Health Assessment (HA). Completing the HA is easy and completely confidential. In fact, there’s a link in the MyOEBB system so you can complete it while you’re making your plan elections if you want! Or, you can go to your medical carrier’s website and complete your HA anytime between now and May 31, 2014.

What to Gather Before You Begin

 

Gathering some of your recent health information before you start your Health Assessment will help you have a more complete and accurate assessment and save time.  Although some of these details are not required and you can skip questions, to get the full benefit of this tool, you’ll want to answer just as many questions as you possibly can. You may find it helpful to gather the following information before you begin and note the dates these measurements were taken whenever possible:

 
·         current height, weight and waist size in inches
 
·         recent blood pressure
 
·         your most recent lab results (should be current within the past 5 years)
o   cholesterol (LDL, HDL, and Triglycerides)
o   fasting and/or non-fasting glucose level
 
·         date of most recent preventive screenings and vaccines such as:
o   Mammogram
o   PAP smear
o   Colon cancer screening
o   Flu vaccine
o   Pneumonia vaccine
