Biometric Screenings

ActiveHealth, a new voluntary wellness program for employees covered by a State of Indiana health plan, is a comprehensive tool that encourages lifestyle habits that reduce the risk of disease and promote good health. The ActiveHealth rewards program is one way it does that. It offers employees and covered spouses $100 e-gift cards for completing a biometric screening (they can also earn $50 e-gift cards for completing the ActiveHealth health assessment, see www.investinyourhealthindiana.com/activehealth for more on that).

A biometric screening is similar to a yearly wellness exam. The information gathered during this check includes: height, weight, BMI, waist circumference, blood pressure, blood glucose, and a full lipid panel (total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and Triglycerides). You must follow certain restrictions before receiving a biometric screening.

Ready to get started?
Stay tuned for dates and more information about free state biometric screening events scheduled at state work locations. You can also complete your screening at your doctor’s office or a Quest Diagnostics Patient Service Center. To do so, you’ll need to download the Provider Results Form and Instructions. Fill out the first portion of the form and bring it with you. Your provider will complete the second part. There is no cost to employees or covered spouses for the screening if you present the provider results form to Quest Diagnostics. Costs for completing the screening at your physician’s office may vary depending on insurance. One screening each for covered employees and spouses per year is covered under this program.

Important: Biometric screening results must be submitted by Oct. 31, 2019, in order to be accepted. To ensure this deadline is met, please schedule your screening at least two weeks prior to the date to allow ample time for the provider to process results.

That’s it! Once you’ve completed your screening, check the Rewards Center to redeem your e-gift card. If you have questions, please contact the INSPD Benefits hotline at 317-232-1167 (in Indianapolis) or 1-877-248-0007 (for employees outside of Indianapolis).
