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.
