View the form here: FY22 Health Yourself Screening form

How does this form work?

  • This form allows employees the opportunity to earn the discount through biometrics, preventive care visits, and Health Yourself activities.
  • Employees must earn 100 points and return this form to Jess Brown by May 31st to qualify for the discount.
  • If you earn over 150 points, you will be eligible for a prize drawing.

Are you ready to start earning the discount?

  • The easiest place to start is with a Health Yourself  blood draw- this helps us map out how you can earn all 100 points, and ensures your biometrics are completely filled out (this is a common place for error with your doctor). Doing your draw with HY is free to you.
  • This year is a full fasting blood draw- watch for more information regarding our fall blood draws at BRH & CBJ departments from September to November.
  • If you are already earning points from activities (right on!), you can print off the form and start keeping track for yourself. I will keep track of your activities in Lawson for CBJ employees and in Taleo for BRH employees, where you can log in and double check that we have the same record.

Wellness Pass discounts and 40% Wellness Pass information- benefited employees and spouses are eligible for discounts to local and CBJ recreation facilities to help keep them healthy! Click here for more information.
