An online health assessment is a valuable tool that provides you with personalized information about your health risks and strengths. 
The health assessment is available between Aug. 1 – Aug. 30, 2019. Access the online health assessment on the My Wellness portal (accessed through My Health Plan), by clicking the “Health Assessment & Results” tile. If you have trouble logging in, or are not a current member, please review the alternate log-in instructions. You can use your mobile phone or tablet to complete the assessment.
Taking the online health assessment is like giving yourself an annual health checkup. The report will help you focus on the things that can have the biggest impact on your health. You will also get suggestions on how to take action with online tools or other resources available to you.
Taking the online health assessment is quick and easy — it only takes about 30 minutes to answer questions about your health and health habits using the secure, online portal.
At the very basic level, you will need to know your blood pressure, weight, height, waist measurement, blood test results (triglycerides and LDL/HDL cholesterol). If you do not know your blood pressure or cholesterol, that is fine, you are able to choose what range you fall in (i.e. Low, Normal, Borderline, High or Don’t Know), but the calculation for your Risk for Disease and Health Management Meter may not be able to be calculated accurately. 
The Acknowledgement Agreement Form contains information regarding the Wellness Program for the Samaritan Choice Wellness plan and will be displayed in PeopleSoft when you enroll.  
The health assessment is asking more in-depth questions to provide you with more comprehensive information about your risks for certain diseases and conditions. This requires asking more detailed questions regarding your lifestyle, medical history, sexual history and other information about you.
Once you complete your online health assessment you will be provided a personalized health assessment report showing your current health status. This report will help you take real and meaningful steps to invest in your health, wellness, and longevity. Samaritan Health Plans encourages you to see and share the results with your doctor if there is anything out of range. 
For technical support with the online health assessment, please contact Kadalyst Customer Service by email at samhealth@kadalyst.com or by phone at 503-512-5175 ext. SAM (726), Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT.
