Biometric Health Screenings

Biometric Health Screenings: 

As a component of Healthy OHIO, benefits-participating Ohio University employees and benefits-participating spouses/partners can participate in FREE health screenings annually to receive $60 (taxable) on an upcoming OHIO paycheck. If both spouses/partners on a medical plan participate in the screening, $120 will be added to the paycheck of the benefits-carrying employee. Athens campus screenings occur in Fall semester; regional campus screenings occur in Spring semester.

It is recommended that you fast for 8-12 hours prior to your screening; however, if you need to schedule a time when fasting is difficult, don't fast. Inform the clinical team you are non-fasting and a non-fasting parameter for results will be used. Water is always allowed and is encouraged. If you do choose to fast, we recommend planning for a snack to enjoy after your screening. 

Regional Campus Screenings:  

More details regarding regional campus screening dates and how to reserve your time slot will be made available after the new year. Notices regarding screening dates will be made available on the WellWorks website, via our Healthy OHIO newsletter and through posters/marketing distributed by Regional Campus Wellness Champions.

Can't attend a screening on your campus?

If you received a qualifying health screening from your physician between December 1, 2017 and November 30, 2018 (for Athens campus; regional campus dates TBA), you can submit a Physician Screening Form instead of attending any of the above screening events. The updated Physician Screening Form (PDF)  is now available.
Once your physician has completed the required fields of the form, you or your physician can fax the completed and signed form to WellWorks per the instructions on the form.
We will contact you when we receive the form. Please email wellworks@ohio.edu if you do not hear from us.
