Register now to Know Your Numbers and enhance your health! 

Schedule your health screening now

Yale New Haven Health’s Know Your Numbers (KYN) Plus program gives you the power to make decisions that impact your health. With the COVID-19 pandemic highlighting the importance of well-being, a biometric screening that provides a snapshot of your physical health (your “numbers”) is an important piece of knowing where you stand. Schedule your screening today to get a jump start on your health. 

“The KYN Plus program doesn’t stop there,” said Melissa Turner, senior vice president and chief human resources officer, YNHHS. “As part of Thrive, the hub for all YNHHS employee well-being resources, KYN Plus includes an expanded list of activities, extending into areas such as emotional, physical and financial wellness, to help bring your health and well-being full circle.”

While employees may use the many Thrive resources year-round, the KYN Plus component is available now through Sept. 15.

To participate:

  1. Enroll in the Virgin Pulse employee well-being portal (if you haven’t already)
  2. Receive a biometric (health) screening (schedule it on the Virgin Pulse portal)
  3. Complete Thrive/KYN Plus personal choice activities 

All employees are encouraged to participate in KYN Plus to enhance their well-being. YNHHS benefits-eligible employees hired on or before Aug. 14, 2022, can earn up to $500 credit toward their 2023 YNHHS medical plan premium by participating in the program. 

Step 1: Enroll in the Virgin Pulse employee well-being portal (
Employees who choose to participate in KYN Plus must enroll in the portal. (Employees who have already enrolled do not need to re-enroll; just log-in using single sign-on.) Access the portal from Infor or the Resources section of the employee intranet. YNHHS benefits-eligible employees must also complete Steps 2 and 3 to earn up to $500 credit toward their 2023 YNHHS medical plan premium. 

Step 2: Receive a biometric (health) screening
These brief, in-person health assessments provide a picture of your overall health and alert you to possible risks. All employees are encouraged to receive a biometric screening for your own benefit, so you can “know your numbers.”

Biometric screenings measure:

  • Total cholesterol, HDL (good cholesterol), LDL (bad cholesterol), triglycerides and blood glucose
  • Blood pressure
  • Height, weight and body mass index (BMI)
  • Waist and hip measurements
  • A1C, for employees with high-fasting or non-fasting blood glucose

Starting the week of May 16, YNHHS will conduct onsite biometric screenings at all delivery networks; appointments are required. Schedule your screening now using the Virgin Pulse portal; the link will also be on the Employee Self Service Action Dashboard on Infor.

If preferred, benefits-eligible employees may receive a biometric screening from their healthcare provider or at a CVS Caremark location. To receive KYN credit, employees must upload documentation from the off-site screening to the Virgin Pulse portal by Sept. 1, 2022, to ensure they meet the deadline. 

Completing the biometric screening earns $200 credit (toward the possible $500 total). Employees must complete the biometric screening to earn additional credit through KYN Plus.

Step 3: Participate in personal choice activities
All employees can work on their well-being with Thrive resources at any time throughout the year by logging into Virgin Pulse and selecting the Benefits tab from the top menu, or by visiting the employee intranet landing page and choosing Thrive from the Departments and Communities listing.

The table below lists personal choice activities available to KYN Plus participants as part of Thrive. YNHHS benefits-eligible employees can earn YNHHS medical plan premium credit for these activities (credit value column). Employees may participate in as many personal choice activities as desired, but the maximum credit they may earn is $500. Any credit earned by completing KYN personal choice activities will remain “locked” until completion of a health screening.

Use the Rewards tab in Virgin Pulse to get more detail on each personal choice activity and track earned credits. Eligible activities completed from Oct. 1, 2021 through Sept. 15, 2022 qualify for credit.
