HQ & health screenings underway!

The Health Questionnaire (HQ) paired with health screenings and followed up with health coaching are powerful services to help people assess their health, set health goals, and receive expert support in achieving those goals.

Health Questionnaire

Our annual HQ promotional period began August 1. Employees, spouses, and retirees with Trust medical plans are eligible. Here are some great reasons to go all-out with your HQ campaign this year:

  • HQ participants receive a confidential report with insights into overall well-being, earn a $35 Visa debit card for participating, and qualify for health coaching services.
  • HQ results provide employers with essential data to plan wellness programs that make a difference. 50% participation is required to earn the WellCity Award and 2% premium discount.
  • The Trust receives important aggregate data from HQ results that helps control health care costs.

Health screenings

134 Trust members are scheduled to host an onsite health screening this year, from August through October! The screenings, conducted in partnership with StayWell and Summit Health, encourage individuals to stay current with biometric markers of health.

  • Screenings include measurements for height, weight, waist circumference, blood pressure, total cholesterol, HDL and LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and glucose.
  • Participants receive immediate results and a consultation with screening staff.

Here are a few things to know about screenings:

  • Use your coordinator kit to plan and host a successful event.
  • Onsite screenings are now offered only in odd years. If you are not hosting one this year, your next opportunity will be in 2017.
  • Sites with at least five confirmed participants are eligible to host a screening.
  • Screenings are open to all employees and spouses with AWC Trust medical insurance.
  • All Trust medical plans are included: Regence, Asuris, and Group Health.
  • Screening appointments must be made online, through Health Central.
  • Eligible participants may attend a screening at a neighboring screening site if it is more convenient.
  • Invite your elected officials to participate! The Trust will cover their costs, as a way to help you showcase this great event for your leadership.
  • New this year: Eligible participants may also schedule a screening at a participating Quest lab.
