Health Screenings for Twin Cities UPlan Members at Boynton

Faculty, staff, and their spouses or same-sex domestic partners (SSDP) who are members of the UPlan Medical Program are encouraged to attend a preventive health screening administered by Boynton Health Service.

Remember: To earn 100 points,you must complete your screening by August 31, 2014. While you may undergo screenings more than one time in a year, 100 points is the maximum numbers of points that can be earned for completing a biometric health screening in 2014. The test results data will be electronically transmitted by Boynton directly to a participant's online wellness assessment hosted by StayWell Online, the University's independent third party administrator for the Wellness Points program.

Preventive Screenings at: UMD QuickCare Clinic, Physician's Office, or Health Care Provider

Depending upon the location of your work place, there are various sites you or your family members can visit to obtain your biometric test results.

Regularly-scheduled medical exams and health screenings are considered preventive care and their cost, in general, is covered by your medical plan. Ask your physician or medical provider what tests are appropriate for you. As part of routine recommended care, all adults should have their height, weight, and body mass index (BMI) recorded every year.

Additional tests, such as blood cholesterol or blood glucose, can be combined with a doctor's visit. Download the “Know Your Numbers” form (pdf) and use the form to record your biometric information.

In lieu of biometric health screening data obtained through an on-campus screening, UPlan members can instruct their health care provider to submit screening results using the Biometric Health Screening Provider Form. This form is also available through StayWell Online.
