CFAES Biometric Screenings Events on the Columbus Campus – March 25th and June 9th

Each year the Your Plan for Health (YP4H) program offers incentives when you annually complete a verified Biometric Screening and a Personal Health & Well-being Assessment (PHA).  Medical plan enrolled employees can reduce the cost of their medical contributions by $25 per month or by $40 per month if they and their enrolled spouse completes the PHA and biometric screening.

To help you Know Your Numbers and earn YP4H incentives, we would like to invite you to participate in one of two CFAES Human Resources and Staff Advisory Council sponsored Biometric Health Screening events.

Biometric Health Screening:A verified biometric screening can be completed in one of three ways:

On-Campus Screening Event
On March 25th and June 9th,  the OSU Health Plan’s (OSUHP) RN Health Promotion Specialist(s) will be in our department to complete complimentary biometric screenings*.  After completing an on-campus screening, OSUHP will provide verification to Virgin Pulse that you have completed a biometric screening.  See below for screening registration details.

Personal Health & Well-being Assessment (PHA)
Once you complete a verified Biometric Screening, you will need to complete the PHA.  The PHA is an online self-evaluation of your overall wellness and only takes about 15 minutes to complete.  Please note, that the values you obtain from a screening are not pre-populated in your PHA, you will need to self-enter your screening results.   Log in to Virgin Pulse to complete your PHA.

Verify Screening & PHA Completion
When your verified Biometric Screening and PHA have been processed, it will be reflected in your Virgin Pulse account.  Log in to your account and select the “REWARDS” tab.  When you see a green/white checkmark and date by the Screening and PHA activities, you have completed the requirements for this calendar year to receive the premium credit in 2021.
