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. See the schedule above. There are screenings conducted elsewhere in the state to aid our employees who don’t work on the main campus. Each week’s screenings will also be posted on the digital signs. The screening, which includes a finger prick versus a blood draw, takes less than 30 minutes. But allow more time in case there is a line, as screenings are done on a first come, first served basis.
As an alternative to getting your numbers at a screening, you may instead schedule a physical or wellness office visit with your in-network primary care physician. Take this FORM with you to that appointment. Your physician will provide the numbers on this form, then you will mail or fax it in. You will not have to pay an office visit copay for this visit. The blood work must be between the dates of May 1 and Oct 15, 2014 to be accepted.
