In an effort to limit over-taxing our UTMB labs and to help those who may be apprehensive about going to hospitals/clinics for medical care, this year’s Health Risk Assessment (HRA) can be done by completing a Health Assessment online. This online option will allow employees (and dependent spouses, if applicable) to login to their Blue Cross Blue Shield account and complete an online Health Assessment questionnaire (takes approximately 15-30 minutes). Below are instructions to access, create and complete this online assessment. 

Any employee who still prefers going into a medical facility to complete a comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP)(blood draw), will still have that option. CMP/blood draws must have been completed between August 31, 2019 – August 31, 2020. For those that have been vigilant and proactive with completing their CMP/blood draws (August 31, 2019 through July 17, 2020) HR will request a report from BCBS to verify completion. Employees may feel free to provide documentation of completion of their CMP to ensure credit for his/her CMP. 

All others that opt to complete a Health Assessment through the BCBS website or complete a CMP/blood draw through August 31, 2020, must send a confirmation of completion by Emailing LC Benefits. Online Health Assessment completion is due no later than September 11, 2020. Please make sure your name (or your spouse’s name), is clearly stated on the confirmation before sending it over. If you need clarification of these due dates, feel free to reach out to your HR representative.
