Why do it?
Completing a Health Risk Assessment gives you both a comprehensive report on your health (read the next section for more info) and gives you the option to take part in our free health support programs.* (You may need to log in to Online Member Services first)
What is it?
The Health Risk Assessment is an online questionnaire. It’s fun to complete and gives you a very useful breakdown of 12 specific areas of your health, what you can do to improve in each area and what further checks you might need. It even calculates your Body Mass Index on the very first page. Bonus!
Completing the Health Risk Assessment gives you the option to take part in our free* health support programs if it looks like they’d be right for you.
Your Health Risk Assessment results go to My Health Online, a secure place to store and update your wellness plan from your Health Risk Assessment, store your risk results and track the data provided by your smart devices and apps such as Fitbit, Apple Watch, Garmin, Strava, Runkeeper and many more. You get to track your health improvements against your health needs.
Think of this record as your personal health filing cabinet. You can store & send health info to your doctor, track your health and more. It gives you a place for secure storage of important health info and medical docs.
