Do you Know Your Numbers?

Yale New Haven Health is offering all employees free, onsite biometric health screenings at all delivery networks through Know Your Numbers (KYN) Plus. A biometric screening provides a snapshot of your physical health so you can identify and address risk factors such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure or elevated blood glucose levels.
 
bulletinFor benefits-eligible staff who intend to enroll in the YNHHS medical plan for 2022, participation in a biometric screening earns $200 credit toward your 2022 premium and is required to earn up to an additional $300 in Thrive personal choice activities credit.  
 
Onsite biometric screenings are conducted by YNHHS’ trusted vendor, Impact Health. Appointments are required. To schedule, click the link in the KYN Plus article on the intranet homepage, then, select “ImpactHealth-Prod” from the dropdown menu, “Sign In,” then enter your network credentials to access the scheduler.
 
Benefits-eligible employees may also receive a biometric screening from their healthcare provider or at a CVS Caremark location. To access the required form and instructions for uploading documentation, log in to the Virgin Pulse Employee Well-being Portal, located on the intranet under “Resources.” If you haven’t yet enrolled in Virgin Pulse, visit join.virginpulse.com/ynhhs.
 
All employees are encouraged to participate in YNHHS’ vast array of activities to support their well-being. As part of Thrive, the new hub for all YNHHS employee well-being resources, KYN Plus now includes an expanded list of personal choice activities, extending into areas such as emotional, social and financial wellness, to help bring your health and well-being full circle. While employees can use the many Thrive resources year-round to enhance their overall well-being, the KYN Plus component of Thrive runs through Sept. 15. Visit the Thrive intranet site (internal network only) for full details: dept.ynhh.org/thrive
