Partnership PPO Members May Need a Screening
In 2015, a biometric screening is required of all new members of the Partnership PPO (employees and covered family members) as well as those members contacted by Healthways for health coaching. The screening includes height, weight, blood pressure and waist circumference. A sample of your blood is also collected to determine blood sugar, cholesterol levels and other factors that can lead to lifestyle-related health complications. The biometric screening is not a part of the Well-Being Assessment (WBA).
