2018 Biometric Screenings | Annual Physical
An annual physical is the prime time to have biometric data collected. Employees are encouraged to get their annual physicals and biometric screenings wherever it makes the most sense for them to do so. A visit to your primary care provider for an ANNUAL PHYSICAL is covered under all EKU Health Plans with a $0 co-pay.
Plan to print and take your biometric screening form-however, the Form DOES NOT require a Physician's signature to receive credit-you are able to fill out the information after the screening and send it in to Viverae.
2017 Biometric Screenings
In 2017, we eliminated biometric screenings on campus. Our goal was for each employee to begin to develop a relationship with a primary care physician and secure an annual physical including a biometric screening.
A biometric screening was required in 2017 to continue to receive the wellness credit in 2018, with a deadline of March 31, 2018 for submission. If you submitted one for 2017, you have until 12/31/2018 to submit your 2018 biometric screening. If you did not submit a screening in 2017, you cannot continue to earn the wellness credit in 2018 until you have submitted a completed 2018 biometric screening to Viverae.
Every EKU health plan has $0 copay for preventative care. Annual physicals, preventative screenings and well visits are fully covered by each EKU health plan.
All newly-hired employees can submit their biometric form from a physical completed within the past year to begin earning the quarterly wellness credit in the next quarter.
