Biometric Screening

Biometric Screening - Automatic Connection to your HRA and More Screening Options

A biometric screening is a short health examination that determines your risk level for certain diseases and medical conditions. It includes a check of your blood pressure, height, weight, body mass index, and fasting or non-fasting blood sugar and cholesterol.

Your Biometric Screening Results Can Now Be Connected to Your HRA.  If you choose to complete your biometric screening as the first of the three steps, your HRA will be faster and provide HRA results that are even more accurate and helpful. That's because StayWell® will upload your results to the OC Healthy Steps website and they will be pre-populated into your HRA.  Note: it takes 14 business days to process the results and pre-populate your HRA.  Complete this step first by attending an onsite screening, having your health care provider complete a form, or our newest option, making a lab appointment.

  • NEW LAB OPTION: If you desire, you can now choose to make an appointment at a participating lab near your home or office to complete your screening there.  Starting July 6, 2015, visit ochealthysteps.staywell.com to find a participating lab, and make an appointment.  The lab option offers early morning and some Saturday appointments, too.  Please note: A physician's order is not required but you must bring your online appointment confirmation with you and you must FAST prior to lab appointment.
  • ONSITE: Choose an onsite biometric screening scheduled at various County locations most convenient for you.  You can set up your appointment online in advance at ochealthysteps.staywell.com.  Please register as a "new user" if this is your first time registering for the 2015 onsite screenings.
  • WITH YOUR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER: If you prefer, you may choose to visit your own health care provider for a biometric screening and have your health care provider complete the screening information from prior screenings you had between January 1, 2015, and August 21, 2015.  Download a Biometric Health Screening Confirmation Form from ochealthysteps.staywell.com and take it to your appointment.  Once your health care provider has completed it, you can either fax it or mail it back to StayWell®.  All forms must be received by August 21, 2015.  Be sure to keep a copy of your completed form and fax confirmation for your records.
