Know Your Numbers
Know Your Numbers is a wellness initiative that will be linked to your health insurance plan. Employees, retirees and spouses enrolled in Wake County’s health insurance are being asked to get an annual biometric screening beforeOctober 31, 2013. Children are exempt from the program.
The program consists of a biometric screening designed to help employees identify and begin to manage health risks factors that could lead to chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and obesity.
To ensure the complete biometric screening isperformed and that your provider codes the blood drawappropriately, please download the letter below.
A biometric screening includes a blood draw to check your blood sugar and cholesterol. The screening also includes a blood pressure check. You can request a biometric screening during a routine office visit with your doctor. You can also receive one during your annual physical.
If you are wondering how the County will know thatyou completed yourbiometric screening, theCounty will receive a report from BCBSNC that identifies everyone who had their biometric screening during the program period.
If you have completed your screening and wish to confirm if your name is on the BCBSNC report, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (please wait to inquire at least 45 days after your screening is completed.)
The County willNOTknow yourpersonal health information.They will only know whether or not you participated in the program. The County will not be gathering personal health information from participants, nor will the County use this information to penalize individuals or groups of individuals with chronic health conditions. The information received from the participant population will be used to identify the specific health conditions that are impacting you and other plan participants. We’ll then be able to provide wellness programs that can help you and other plan participants manage your health.
Biometric screenings are covered at 100 percent if you use a doctor in the BCBSNC network.
The timeframe to complete your screening is November 1, 2012, through October 31, 2013. If a biometric screening is not completed, your insurance premium will increase beginning January 1, 2014. This will be in addition to any other insurance increases.
The premium increases will be:
- $20 per month for retiree
- Additional $20 per month if spouse is covered
