Health Risk Assessment
A Health Risk Assessment is a confidential questionnaire designed by healthcare experts to help you evaluate your health and identify potential health risks before they become serious health problems. Once you complete the confidential questionnaire, healthcare professionals will review your answers and, if applicable, provide you with recommendations on how to enhance your health and well-being, so you can seek proper care and make necessary lifestyle changes.
The results of the Health Risk Assessment are confidential and are available only to you. Results are not available to the Fund Office, your employer, or your union. Your Health Risk Assessment will not affect your eligibility or benefit payments.
You can complete the new Health Risk Assessment online.
All of your personal health information is completely confidential. The Fund’s Wellness Power program meets all federal and state regulations, including those that are part of the HIPAA privacy regulations.
Retirees and eligible dependents also have access to health improvement programs including interactive tools, resources, information, and online lessons, as well as access to healthcare professionals to help you achieve and maintain a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
