In an effort to help our employees become healthier, and to identify areas where they may be at risk, the LGHIB established the Worksite Wellness Program. Employees and non-Medicare retirees who are enrolled in the Local Government Health Insurance Plan (Group 30000), along with their covered spouses, are eligible to participate in one wellness screening annually during the wellness qualifying period.
The health coaches performing the screenings are trained and experienced in assessing risk factors, providing education, and making recommendations to help members reach their wellness goals
Upcoming County Hosted
A make-up screening will take place, soon.
Check back here later for more details!
Participation in the Annual Wellness Screenings is REQUIRED by Madison County in order to keep the Employee’s current preferred healthcare rates.
What to expect at your wellness screening
Comprehensive Lipid Profile
A lipid panel is a blood test that measures the amount of certain fat molecules called lipids in your blood. The panel measures triglycerides, LDL, HDL, and total cholesterol.
Healthcare providers use lipid panels to help assess someone’s cardiovascular health by analyzing cholesterol in their blood and to help diagnose other health conditions.
Blood Glucose Check
A blood glucose test measures the glucose levels in your blood. Glucose is a type of sugar. It is your body's main source of energy. A hormone called insulin helps move glucose from your bloodstream into your cells. Too much or too little glucose in the blood can be a sign of a serious medical condition.
Body mass Index (BMI)
Body Mass Index (BMI) is a person’s weight in kilograms (or pounds) divided by the square of height in meters (or feet). A high BMI can indicate high body fatness. BMI screens for weight categories that may lead to health problems, but it does not diagnose the body fatness or health of an individual.
