Take the Communications Survey
If you have never had a biometric screening, which is a baseline requirement for MyHealth, you will have the option to participate in one of many free screenings to be held in locations convenient to all UPMC business units this May, June, and July — or to visit your doctor for a screening that includes height, weight, a lipid panel (cholesterol and triglyceride measurements) and a blood glucose test.
If you need to complete your biometric screening, you should have received a letter that includes dates, times, and locations of the UPMC screenings. If you have never had a biometric screening, completing a screening at either a UPMC site or your physician’s office will result in your completion of one of the two steps required for the 2009 MyHealth deductible credit.
If you have already had a biometric screening, you can select your additional healthy step from several activities, including:
Certain activities you may have participated in between January 1 and June 1 will count as completed “healthy steps,” and employees who have completed these activities will see that they have received credit for them when they visit the Take a Healthy Step website after June 1. Of course, everyone is invited and encouraged to go “well” beyond the single healthy step needed to fulfill their MyHealth deductible requirement. During the year ahead, the Take a Healthy Step theme will unite many exciting opportunities for UPMC employees to maintain and improve their health. Watch your mail, e-mail, work location, and upcoming issues of Extra! for details.
