Know Your Numbers Lunch ‘n Learn held on March 22, 2016



Thank you to Jane Lehman of Prevea for sharing interesting information about biometric measurements!  We learned about cholesterol HDL, LDL, and triglyceride numbers, as well as glucose and blood pressure measurements.  She cautioned us to take our BMI number with a grain of salt, and shared practical ways we can improve our numbers, and more importantly, our health!  Please click here to view her Power Point presentation.

Biometric Screening Event

Well Wisconsin Biometric Screening Event

When:  Monday, April 18th

Time:   Appointments available between 8:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

Where:  University Union, Phoenix Rooms

Who can Participate:  Member employees and spouses/domestic partners enrolled in State Group Health Insurance.  Note: As of January 1, 2016 adult children are no longer eligible to participate or receive the Well Wisconsin Incentive.

How to Participate:  Pre-Registration is required!

                                   Register online at http://wellwisconsin.wi.gov/My-Assessment

Deadline to Register:  Thursday, April 14 (or until all appointments are filled)


In 2016, all state health insurance plans are offering $150/employee and spouses/domestic partners for completing the Well Wisconsin program.  There are two steps to completing the program.

  • Participate in a biometric screening

Get up-to-date testing results on your height, weight, and Body Mass Index (BMI), cholesterol level, glucose measurement, and blood pressure.  At the on-site screening you will be asked to provide proof of insurance (health insurance card).  You will then go through a series of staffed stations for the testing, which generally takes less than 20 minutes.  At the end of the screening you will be given your results.

  • Complete your Health Risk Survey online provided by your health plan

Use your biometric screening results to complete the survey.  Visit http://wellwisconsin.wi.gov and click on your insurance plan in the column to the left for a direct link to the online Health Survey.  This quick, easy survey will ask a range of questions including your daily stress level, family medical history, and typical meal plan.  The Health Survey is designed to help you gauge intangible well-being factors to pinpoint possible health risks.

Once the biometric screening and health survey are completed, the $150 incentive will be processed and issued by your health insurance provider.  Health plan issued rewards are considered a fringe benefit of employment and must be treated as taxable income by the primary subscriber’s employer.  Your health plan is required to report payment information for the subscriber and enrolled family member’s to the subscriber’s employer.  Individual health information will never be shared with the employer.


Even if you are unable to attend the on-site Biometric Screening on April 18th, you can complete the biometric screening portion with your physician (the necessary paper forms for physician’s completion are available under each individual health plan on the Well Wisconsin website).


Please direct any questions to Kimberly Danielson, Benefits Specialist, at (920) 465-2196 or danielsk@uwgb.edu.
