Quest Diagnostics provides these on-site screening services. The health screening measures your blood pressure, body mass index, and collects a blood sample by finger-stick to measure your cholesterol, triglycerides, and glucose levels. The screening process, including your results, will take less than 20 minutes to complete; on-site screening results are automatically submitted to StayWell on your behalf, Step 1 towards earning your incentive.

Health Screening FAQ

Footnotes

1 Effective January 1, 2016, adult children are no longer eligible for the Well Wisconsin Program incentive (only your enrolled spouse/domestic partner). This is the result of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) recent ruling on the applicability of Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) to employee wellness programs and the proposed rule amending GINA to allow spouse participation.

2 All wellness incentives paid to participants of the State of Wisconsin or Wisconsin Public Employer Group Health Insurance Programs by StayWell are considered taxable income to the group health plan subscriber and are reported to your employer for tax purposes.

3 Health Information, including responses to the health assessment, are protected by federal law and will never be shared with your employer.

4 If you are enrolled in Humana’s Medicare Advantage Plan or have a postal address outside the U.S. you are not eligible to receive the $150 incentive.
