Attending a free onsite health fair is the easiest way to complete a biometric screening – one of two annual required activities, along with an online Health Risk Assessment, needed to qualify for a Healthy Living Program incentive in 2018.

A biometric screening gives you a good picture of your overall health. And it could be worth up to 475 points toward your Healthy Living total. You’ll earn 75 points just for completing your biometric screening; depending on your results, you could earn another 75 points each for your HDL, triglycerides, waist circumference, blood pressure and glucose metrics. Plus another 25 points if you receive a flu vaccination.

This year, onsite health fairs are scheduled Sept. 19 through Nov. 2 at selected FirstEnergy locations in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New Jersey and Maryland. Check the schedule of 2017 onsite health fairs and please register as soon as possible ahead of time.

If you can’t make it to an onsite fair, you can arrange for a biometric screening/vaccination with your personal physician, at an approved lab or an approved retail location. And keep in mind, spouses or domestic partners can earn an additional $200 Healthy Living incentive just by completing a biometric screening and online Health Risk Assessment of their own. More information and the necessary forms are available online through www.firstenergycorp.com/healthyliving* or by contacting Provant.

If you have any questions about the Healthy Living program or onsite health fairs, please get in touch with your nearest health fair contact, your local Healthy Living wellness champion or Provant at provantone@provanthealth.com or 1-855-883-0367.
