BLUEPRINT FOR WELLNESS SCREENING
Just a quick reminder for all Healthflex participants and spouses to register for the Blueprint for Wellness Screening. This screening involves a comprehensive blood test that is free to all Conference Health (Active or Retiree) Insurance participants and their spouses. Not only will this free screening give you and your doctor valuable information regarding your heart, kidney function, cholesterol, blood sugar, thyroid function, iron and more, but will also allow you to earn $100 in HealthCash if you are enrolled in the Virgin Pulse program.
This information will be kept confidential. No one at your church, conference, employer, plan sponsor, HealthFlex, or General Board can access your personal lab results. Our independent lab, Quest Diagnostics, is bound by federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements to protect your privacy.
The deadline for the Blueprint for Wellness is July 31, 2016. Please register at a Quest Diagnostic facility at
