UA's Wellness Program with Healthyroads offers a Personal Health Assessment (PHA) to give you a personal scorecard for your current state of health.

You'll also find the current incentive program details, as well as access to health resources such as the coaching program, online classes, and extensive information on health conditions, medications, prevention topics and much more.

Biometric screening results, either from your doctor's office with the health care provider form (for current employees or new hires), a Quest Diagnostic service center or an onsite screening, will be added to your scorecard to give you an up-to-date assessment of your state of health.  Coaching is available to help you reach your personal health goals.

Employees can use the new SSO located here.

(Enrolled spouses and FIPs are eligible for this program, too, and they should go to to register.)

Preventive Benefits / Screenings

Each plan offered in the UA Choice health plan provides a comprehensive preventative benefit, including routine annual physicals or checkups, immunizations, and screenings for many types of cancer and other conditions including type 2 diabetes.  A full list of the preventative benefits offered under the plan can be found here.

The preventive benefit does not have a deductible and the plan pays 100% of allowable charges.  This means that even if you're on the high deductible or consumer-driven health plans, you can access these services with no out of pocket cost to you.

Premera has provided some helpful information to make sure you get the full value from your plan's preventive benefit.  Click here for more information on how to use the benefit.
