Have you had your biometric screening this year? A biometric screening provides a clinical snapshot of key health measures which may be used to identify certain health conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease, or to indicate an increased risk for these conditions before you begin to have symptoms.

Faculty and staff enrolled in the OSU Health Plan can earn a $25/month premium credit, or up to $40/month with an enrolled spouse, off of employee medical plan contributions in 2022 by completing a Personal Health and Well-being Assessment (PHA) and a verified biometric screening by Dec. 31, 2021. Your verified biometric screening, consisting of height, weight, blood pressure, total cholesterol, HDL, and blood sugar value (either glucose or A1C), can be completed during an annual exam with a health care provider, or through an on-campus screening. Visit the previous biometric screening link for more information and to search for biometric screening appointments.
