Complete Your Online Health Assessment

The online health assessment, one of the three wellness qualifications, is designed to show how your lifestyle habits affect your overall health. After you’ve completed your assessment, the information provided will be used to create a summary of your well-being while also recommending resources and programs that might benefit you.

The assessment questions will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Please note that it will take two hours for your health assessment to show as complete under the My Progress tab.

You must complete your Online Health Assessment by April 1, 2020 to meet this wellness qualification. Meeting the three wellness qualifications allows you to elect the Low Deductible Health Plan for FY21 or receive the full State HSA contribution should you elect the High Deductible Health Plan.
