Knowing your health status is your critical starting point for living your healthiest life.
It allows you to make lifestyle changes that optimize your health and manage risks and chronic disease.
You will take three actions: know your numbers, complete a health assessment, and schedule a well check to discuss your results.
When you take these actions, you can earn money for your health reimbursement account (HRA) and Virgin Pulse points too!
Step 1: Know Your Numbers
Get started by completing Sandia’s know your numbers preventive screening.
This screening helps determine your risk level for certain diseases and medical conditions. Measurements include:
Body mass index (BMI)
Lipid and glucose levels
You can complete your screening through one of Sandia’s Employee Health Services clinics.
To schedule your screening, or to sign up for notifications on when you should screen again, send a message to Employee Health Services through FollowMyHealth. Also, be sure to complete this form and bring it with you to your screening.
If your health risks indicate the need for further screenings, we may schedule a fasting or non-fasting lab draw. If you have lab draw orders from a medical provider outside of Sandia, fax them to 505-844-2608 at least 24 hours prior to your appointment and bring them with you to your appointment.
Once you know your numbers, you can use them to complete your confidential, brief online health assessment.
By answering questions about your health and lifestyle habits, you’ll get an insightful report that pinpoints where you are doing well, areas that require some attention, and where your health might be at risk.
Well checks empower you to take further ownership of your health. And, you can receive 3,000 Virgin Pulse points once you complete your well check each year.
After you complete your health assessment, schedule a well check to discuss your results with a Sandia Employee Health Services health educator who can coordinate your needs with onsite preventive health programs.
Be sure to bring a copy of your health assessment to your appointment. During your appointment, your onsite Sandia provider will work with you to:
Discuss your health concerns
Consider lifestyle changes
Create a personal treatment plan
Obtain referrals to onsite and offsite providers to better manage your health risks
