- Improve and sustain better health for employees.
- Create savings on health care expenses for employees and the employer.
- Free up resources that can be used for pay, benefits, and other institutional priorities.
This will be achieved by encouraging employees to have a confidential screening annually at no cost to the employee and providing resources to help employees make better lifestyle choices and health care decisions. While this is a voluntary program, those employees who choose not to participate in screenings will be required to pay 20% of their individual health care premium rate. We need to attain a high employee participation rate in order to positively affect the future cost of health care at all MEBP institutions while also improving the overall health of our employees.
Wellness Screenings and Information (2016-17)
Employee wellness screenings for 2016-2017 are scheduled for Tuesday through Thursday, March 22nd through March 24th, in Newcomer 19 from 7am – 10:30am. Screenings must be scheduled online in advance. Every employee who has health insurance through Goshen College is encouraged to participate in the screenings. If you choose not to do so, you will be required to pay part of your employee premium starting July 2016.
You will need to fast for 9-12 hours prior to your screening. The blood test portion of the screening will be performed with a finger prick. Results will be provided immediately and you will have an opportunity to speak with a health coach prior to leaving. If you miss the screening at the college, you will need to go to your doctor using the Talk to Your Doc procedure outlined below.
