Onlife Health is a free health and wellness program for employees and their spouses who are insured under the UA health insurance plan. Log in to their site for education, motivation and fun.
The starting point is for you to complete an initial ”onmyway” health assessment questionnaire at www.OnlifeHealth.com. If you are a returning user, enter your username and password. If you are a new user, click GET STARTED and type in “UAS” as the key code. Follow the online instructions to create your username and password.
The health assessment gathers information in certain areas, such as your key lifestyle factors, gender-specific issues and clinical measurements. Onlife analyzes your answers to find factors that may lead to health issues, concerns and risks that you can easily prevent. A health coach will be available to provide personalized assistance for achieving wellness goals such as losing weight, quitting smoking, improving nutrition, increasing physical activity or dealing with chronic health problems like diabetes or high blood pressure.
The program includes incentives for achieving goals. You can earn points by taking actions through the year to improve your health. You will automatically be entered in a quarterly drawing and be eligible to win a $250 gift card if you earn 150 Life Points each quarter.

STEP 1 Get your numbers at a biometric screening.
Biometric health screenings will be offered by the UAMS Employee Health Office between Aug 1 and Oct 17, 2014. The schedule is in the 7-23-2014 letter above. It will also be posted on the Inside UAMS intranet and digital signs.
You can also get your numbers by taking this form to your in-network primary care physician. Your physician will do the screening, complete the form, and then you will mail or fax it in. You will not have to pay an office visit copay for your annual wellness visit. If you opt for this method, the deadline to submit the form is a little earlier, Oct 15, 2014. The physical and blood work by your physician must be completed between May 1, 2014 and Oct 15, 2014.
