Our commitment to your total wellness is another way we live out our mission of promoting health and a healthy society that enables achievement of full human potential.
Understand your health with an at-home Virtual Checkup
What is this? Virtual Checkup is a 100% virtual at-home health checkup. Your Home Kit has everything you need to complete your checkup. You’ll simply collect your sample and return it to the lab in a pre-paid envelope. After it’s received, you’ll schedule a call with a Nurse Practitioner to go over your results and develop a Personal Action Plan to help you achieve your health goals. The results of your health checkup are completely confidential and will not be shared with your employer.
Who is eligible? Virtual Checkup is available at NO COST to all covered employees, spouses, and dependents (18+). One home kit covered per plan year.
Why participate? Our simple health checkup will provide you with insightful information about your health. You’ll learn about your risk factors relative to diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and depression. A board-certified Nurse Practitioner will review your results with you (via private online video conference) and provide you with a Personal Action Plan so that you can improve and optimize your health!
