› Health Screening—Body Mass Index (BMI) ($50+$25)

(a) Obtain a Body Mass Index (BMI) screening at a employee wellness fair or in your physician’s office by December 31, 2018 to earn a $50 co-share credit.

(b) Earn an additional $25 co-share credit with a BMI screening of less than 27.5 OR by watching the Achieving a Healthy Body Weight video and completing the corresponding quiz.

According to the CDC, BMI can be used as a screening tool, but it is not diagnostic of the body fatness or health of an individual. However, BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness. High body fatness means increased weight on your frame, putting you at risk for high blood pressure (hypertension), high blood sugar, type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea and breathing problems, some cancers (endometrial, breast, colon, kidney, gallbladder, and liver), clinical depression, anxiety, and other mental disorders. This year the target has been changed to less than 27.5, which is lower than the previous years’ BMI screening targets, but which is also a better gauge of lower body fatness and better health.
