Areas of Focus
The questions will focus on different areas of health-related behavior, such as:
- general information & health history
- physical activity & nutrition
- stress & well-being
- health screening numbers
- readiness to change lifestyles
If you don't know the answer to a question in the health assessment, you can skip as many as necessary and still get credit for completion. However, the more accurate information you can put into it, the more useful recommendations you will get at the end.
What May Be Helpful
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. Some examples of helpful information are:
- current height, weight and waist size in inches
- recent blood pressure
- your most recent lab results (should be current within the past 5 years)
- cholesterol (LDL, HDL, and Triglycerides)
- fasting and/or non-fasting glucose level
- date of most recent preventive screenings and vaccines such as:
- PAP smear
- Colon cancer screening
- Flu vaccine
- Pneumonia vaccine
Your Information is Confidential
The online Health Assessments are managed by a third-party vendor specializing in keeping your responses and results private. Individual information will never be shared with your employer. The Health Assessment is meant to help you examine your own behaviors and identify actions you could take to improve your health. If you wish to share your personal results with your doctor, you can print a copy and take it with you to your next visit.
OEBB will receive a summary report (no individual results identified) indicating the overall health of OEBB members as a group. (For example, it may show what percentage of all respondents reported using tobacco, or what percentage of all respondents reported eating at least five servings of fruits and vegetables per day.) This provides a baseline on the overall health of the group. OEBB will use this information when considering future benefit program and plan design changes as well as to measure and track the success of the Healthy Futures program and other benefit enhancements.
The Oregon Educators Benefit Board (OEBB) will allow exemptions from the Healthy Futures’ online health assessment and/or the two healthy activities requirements for members whose condition, disability or situation makes it unreasonably difficult or medically inadvisable. The complete policy and instructions explaining how to apply for exemption are available on the OEBB website.
