FAQs

HEALTH SCREENINGS - Frequently Asked Questions

How can I get my screening results?
Call Quest Diagnostics Customer Contact Center to request screening results be mailed to you at: 888-240-0962. The team will take your information and have it mailed to your home address. Allow 10 business days.

What is a biometric screening?
Biometric screenings can provide a picture of your overall health. UAB has partnered with Quest Diagnostics, a nationwide health and wellness company, to provide these screenings. The onsite health screening is quick and easy and takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete. The screening is free and confidential, includes a non-fasting finger stick and the opportunity to discuss your results with a medical professional. The biometric screenings will measure the following:

  • Total Cholesterol
  • Glucose (blood sugar)
  • HDL – High Density Lipoproteins
  • Blood Pressure
  • Height and Weight
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • Pulse Rate
  • Waist Circumference
  • Fasting NOT Required

How is my confidentiality protected?
You may have some concerns about the confidentiality about your personal information. We assure you that in compliance with HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) your personal information from the biometric screening will NOT be shared on an individual level with your employer. However, UAB will receive aggregate information (without names) in order to design future wellness initiatives. View the Notice of Privacy Practices.

How long will the screening take?
It will take 15 – 20 minutes to take control of your health.

How do the biometric screenings benefit me?
It is important to know your personal numbers. Health screenings can identify unknown conditions, diseases, or risks for disease that can significantly influence the quality of one’s life for the future. A simple drop of blood can provide clues about how to improve one’s health and well-being. 

What metrics are included in the onsite health screening?
Non-fasting fingerstick program consisting of the following lipid profile and biometrics to include total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, glucose, the ratio between total cholesterol and HDL, blood pressure, pulse, measured height and weight, BMI and waist circumference.

Who is eligible to participate?

Who will have access to my personal data?

Quest Diagnostics and Chip Rewards protect all screening data through secure processes and protocols to guarantee confidentiality.

Why is UAB offering biometric screenings?

When will the onsite biometric screenings take place?
Screenings will be conducted February 22 through March 16, 2016.

Where will onsite biometric screenings be offered?
Screenings will be offered at various locations across UAB.

Why are biometric screenings not offered in my building?
UAB has done its best to accommodate staff across our many campuses and locations. However, we are unable to set up screenings at every site.

Can I participate in the onsite biometric screening during work hours?
Yes, employees can participate in screenings during work hours.

How can I make an appointment for my screening? How far in advance do I need to make it?
You can make your appointment online. It is suggested that you make your appointment at least three to four weeks prior to the screening to reserve a time and day that best meets your schedule.

Do I have to make an appointment, or can I walk in at a day and time that is convenient for me?
Appointments are highly recommended to ensure that you can be screened in the location at the day and time that works best for your schedule.

WALK-INS: A limited number of walk-in participants can be screened; however, the waiting time will depend on those that have already pre-registered.

Can I eat or drink anything before the screening or do I need to fast?
You do not need to fast.

Do I need to bring my UAB ID badge?
Yes, your UAB ID is required to check in at the screening site. 

What other option do I have if I am unavailable to attend the biometric screening?
If you are unable to attend one of the screening events, you have the option to have the appropriate measures taken by your primary care physician. This can be done during your annual preventive exam. A Physician Fax Form will need to be completed by your physician and faxed to Quest Diagnostics. Please confirm with your physician that your visit is a preventive exam visit to ensure that it is recorded (“coded”) appropriately. If you had a regular preventive visit at your physician’s office between March 19, 2015, and March 18, 2016, ask your physician to complete and fax the physician fax form to Quest Diagnostics no later than March 18, 2016. No exceptions.

Is there a number that UAB employees can call to verify that their physician has submitted their physician fax form to Quest Diagnostics?
Participants can call 877-686-6636 and then select option 5 for Customer Care to verify their Physician Fax form was received.  Please allow 10 business days for processing before calling to confirm.

What type of confirmation will I receive that I have completed my biometric screening?
Quest Diagnostics will provide a handout at the end of your screening that records the date and your personal screening values. Keep it for your records as confirmation of your screening.
