Schedule your biometric screening and earn your HealthQuest Rewards points

In three easy steps, you can save $480 on your health plan premium for Plan Year 2015. The third year of our HealthQuest Rewards Program began Aug. 1, 2013, and will run through July 31, 2014.

Step 1: Obtain your biometric numbers in one of three ways.

  • Attend the last free onsite screening event: May 13-14 in Francisco Lounge. More information on the onsite events below.
  • Schedule a preventive screening visit with your physician.
  • Order an at-home screening kit offered by HealthQuest. Read more about biometric screenings.

Step 2: Once you have your biometric numbers, you will need to complete the mandatory Health Assessment Questionnaire, which will earn you 10 credits. Complete the questionnaire here.

Step 3: Earn an additional 20 credits (for a total of 30) by July 31, 2014, and you will be eligible for the 2015 reward. Ways to earn additional credits include completing the Tobacco Declaration, getting dental cleanings and well-woman exams, and participating in various programs and challenges. Read more about the rewards program.
