Program Overview

Wellness Goals

  • Employees have a year, starting in June, to meet goals. Accomplishing goals is easy if you start early.
  • The deadline to earn points for the premium discount and prize drawings is June 13, 2015.
  • Point goal is 3250 for each individual. See the Rewards tab for more information.

If you started after January 1, you and your spouses or partners have lower point goals for this year only. Employees who start between January 1 and February 28 have a goal of 3125 points. Employees who start on March 1 or after have a goal of 3000 points.

Step #1: Participate in a Biometric Health Screening.

  • If you completed a screening for Evolve Wellness last year (June 2013 - June 2014), your screening is optional this year.
  • These free health screenings measure body mass index (BMI), blood pressure, blood cholesterol, and blood glucose levels.
  • These are very important numbers that everyone should know. When people become healthier and fit, these numbers improve. This information is a good benchmark of your overall health.
  • Deadline to submit biometric health screening data to Evolve Wellness is May 15, 2015.
  • If you missed the on-site screenings, you have several options to complete your screening:
    • Physician Form - In order for this information to be accepted, both employee and physician will need to sign the form.
    • Have the screening done at Solstas Lab (204 E Washington Street, M-F 7:30-4:30). You'll also need to report your height/weight, waist circumference, and blood pressure when you complete the Health Survey, once your other results show up on the My Survey Results tab (Free BP machines at CVS, Kroger, Wal-Mart pharmacies) to get full credit.
    • You can complete your biometric screening in the comfort of your home by completing a Home Test Kit. To order a kit, contact your Screening Support Team at 1-888-240-0962. You will need to provide this access code when you call: WASH2014.

Step #2: Take a Health Risk Assessment Survey.

After completing your Biometric Health Screening you can take the Health Survey (also known as a Health Risk Assessment or HRA). To take your Health Survey, click on the Take Health Survey tab on the Evolve Wellness website. The survey will ask about your current level of exercise, eating habits, weight goals, and smoking status. At the completion of the survey, you will receive a report that summarizes your results.

Your biometric health screening and health risk assessment survey are confidential. W&L will not have access to your individual answers.

Step #3: Primary Care and Prevention Compliance Visit.

Having a primary care physician that knows your personal and family history, lifestyle risks, and health interests plays a key role in prevention. Your primary care physician can help determine the type and frequency of preventive screenings that are right for you. An annual wellness or prevention visit is a requirement of the program that can be completed at any time during the program year (must be done before the June deadline). There are a variety of wellness/preventive care visits that meet this requirement. Check with your doctor or the Preventive Health Guidelines link to the right for preventive care recommendations.

Step #4: Engage in your wellness and earn additional Wellness Points.

Washington and Lee University offers various wellness related programs, such as on-campus seminars, health coaching and activity challenges. These programs are geared to help you achieve your wellness goals and stay on track with healthy lifestyle choices. See the My Programs and My Rewards tabs on the Evolve Wellness website, www.bebetterhealth.net, for further details.
