Washoe Country School District
Screening and Vaccinations
NEW FOR THE 2012-2013 PLAN YEAR
Make your health a top priority! To assist you in making the wellness program easier, you will no longer need to turn in a Health Screening Form to help earn your $40 health premium discount. For next year, you will only need to complete The Prevention Plan’s Health Appraisal to qualify for the discount!
Starting August 1, 2012, Wellness members will be able to complete their annual Health Appraisal with The Prevention Plan. To meet your individual health and wellness goals and to help you complete your Health Appraisal, it is important to “Know Your Numbers” - such as blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
Getting your numbers is easy. We’ve scheduled free wellness screenings that you may attend. Free flu vaccinations will also be offered at these screening sites! You will also receive a prize from Wellness at your scheduled appointment!
If you can’t make one of the scheduled screenings or if you choose to see your primary care provider, no problem. You can take a “Know your Numbers” form to with you. The Know Your Numbers form is for your reference only.
WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT
The Prevention Plan Health Appraisal, wellness screenings, blood work and vaccinations are available at no cost to you because the District cares about your health. A healthy workforce increases productivity and lowers medical claims—two important factors in keeping our benefit program affordable for you and your family.
YOUR CONFIDENTIALITY IS IMPORTANT
The Prevention Plan is a confidential benefit offered to all District employees, retirees and spouses on a District medical plan. Your information WILL NEVER be shared with the District. It is solely between you and the prevention experts at U.S. Preventive Medicine, the private company that provides the Prevention Plan. The Prevention Plan is HIPAA compliant and accredited in wellness by NCQA and in disease management by URAC. Your privacy and confidentiality is the number one priority.
STEPS TO EARN YOUR 2013 $480 ANNUAL HEALTH INSURANCE DISCOUNT
Attend a free Wellness screening (download screening schedule here) or visit your personal physician for a screening to get your numbers, if you haven’t already had a recent screening from a medical practitioner. You may use the Know Your Numbers form (download here) to record results from your screening. These results will be very helpful in filling out your Health Appraisal (Step 3). NOTE: The Know Your Numbers form is for your personal use only. DO NOT send it to Wellness or any other third party.
The following services are available for FREE at WCSD Wellness Screenings to those WCSD employees, retirees and spouses with District Health Insurance:

New members, use the following registration information:

- Individual ID: Use your medical plan ID number found on the front of your medical insurance card. The Prevention Plan is and will always be COMPLETELY independent from your health plan, but this number is being used for your convenience.
