What is a health assessment?

A health assessment consists of 2 parts: a health risk questionnaire and a biometric screening.

A health assessment is personal and confidential, and because they contain personal health information, they are subject to the HIPAA Privacy laws. Participation in a health assessment is completely voluntary and is not required of any employee.

Importance of a Health Assessment

A health assessment can increase your knowledge of your health and provide you with a baseline of information to make informed decisions regarding your health. Health assessments are a benefit to City of Springfield employees as they are offered free of charge to the employee, which saves costs incurred by visiting a physician for the same services. It will provide a snapshot of individual health information along with resources and tools to create a personal health plan.
