Take a Health Risk Assessment Reward: $100 Wellness Incentive Fund Account credit
Complete a Biometric Screening Reward: $100 Wellness Incentive Fund Account credit
It is easy to get started. Take your Health Risk Assessment today.
A Health Risk Assessment (HRA) is like an interview you take online. It is not that much different from the questions your doctor would ask during an annual checkup. You share information about your health habits and history. Then, you get a personalized health summary that can help you understand your health needs.
Once you know your health needs, you can set meaningful goals for yourself. Whether you need to lose a few pounds, quit smoking, improve your diet, or manage your overall health more effectively, the wellness tools from the RCBP can help you achieve your goals.
