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) or health savings account (HSA). You can earn Virgin Pulse points too!
Step 1: Biometric Screenings
Get started by completing Sandia’s a biometricpreventive screening.
This screening helps determine your risk level for certain diseases and medical conditions. You may get a fasting or a non-fasting screening. Measurements include:
Body mass index (BMI)
Lipid and glucose levels*
*The non-fasting screening does not include all lipids and glucose.
You can complete your screening through one of Sandia’s Employee Health Services clinics.
To schedule a screening in NM, call at the Health Management Clinic at 505-844-1940.
To schedule a screening in CA, email email@example.com.
If your health risks indicate the need for further screenings, we may contact you to schedule an appointment with one of our providers. 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 1,500 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
