If you haven’t scheduled your health screening, now is the time. This is one of the steps to join Healthy for Life, an incentive-based wellness program designed to help you actively manage your health. By completing a personal health assessment and health screening, primary subscribers to the UM Health Care plan will receive $100 in a tax-favored account to use for medical expenses in 2012 Benefit Plan year.

A partnership with Cerner Health provides straightforward tools to help you work toward better health. You can participate in the program now. It’s simple. Here’s how:

  1. Create your Cerner Health account by visiting
  2. Enter your email address and join the program.
  3. Complete your personal health assessment — an online questionnaire that helps you understand your health risks and provides you with resources to improve your well-being.
  4. Schedule your free health screening on campus at a convenient time and location on campus (see below). Your health screening provides a look at your cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, height and weight. If your screening is before noon, fasting for 9 hours is recommended, but not required (6 hours if pregnant) and drinking 64 ounces of water the day before is suggested.

If you have had your annual physical since July 2011, you can complete the Doctor Screening Form and fax it in. It must be completed in its entirety to get credit.
Health Screening appointments are made via your Cerner Health account and are available from 8-11 a.m. in Room 106B Wilson Library on Thursdays on Feb. 2, 9, 16 and 23.
