Blood Pressure and Body Mass Index Screenings

Didn’t attend a Health Fair or meet the screening targets?

That’s OK, you still have time!

If you did not already obtain a Body Mass Index (BMI) or a Blood Pressure screening at the Health Fairs, get your screenings done at your physician’s office and submit signed BMI and Blood Pressure Screenings and Co-Share Incentive forms to UnitedHealthcare.

If you obtain your BMI or blood pressure screenings at your physician’s office, the screenings must occur during the time of offer (September 1, 2016 – March 31, 2017 for BMI; September 1, 2016 – January 31, 2017 for blood pressure) in order to receive the co-share credits.
