A few facts about the health screenings:
- First of all, yes, your health checkup is absolutely FREE to you with no deductible or co-pay. Your health checkup will be filed as a preventive claim on your insurance and covered at 100%.
- Second, your employer will not have access to any of your personal health information. Your checkup will be conducted by Catapult Health, an independent health care provider contracted through BCBS. The screenings are designed to identify potentially detrimental health issues as well as provide an OGB Plan member with basic personal health information.
- Third, your checkup will be quick and easy...it takes about 45 minutes which is less time than you’d probably spend in a doctor’s waiting room. The screenings will be held on-site, right here at LSU. The blood test only involves a quick finger stick, and you’ll meet privately with a licensed Nurse Practitioner who will review your results, answer your questions and help you create an action plan for improving your health.
- Finally, you will need to pre-register for your screening with Catapult Health. Please understand that the screenings require a participant to fast prior to the testing. This fasting enables accurate screening results. It is encouraged that if you plan to participate in a screening, bring yourself a healthy snack to eat afterward!
This will be a great opportunity to receive valuable personal health data that can empower you to make healthy choices or to just stay the course!
