Frequently Asked Questions
Question: When do I need to complete by annual health assessment?
Answer: Starting 01/01/2020, Annual Health Assessments will be due during your birth month but it will be a transition year for some, please see the next FAQ.
Question: What are the rules for 2020 transition period?
The rule is you must be seen within 13 month period by employee health.
So for 2020 you may have to be seen twice if your month of hire is before your birthday you must be seen during month of hire and birth month if more than 1 month apart. If your birthday is before your hire date then you will be seen and are reset for birth month.
Manager self-service has reports for both hire month and birth month that your manager can access.
Question: Where do I go for my annual health assessment?
Answer: You should schedule an appointment with your Employee Health Office BGH and Wilson uses the Clockwise system locations and hours are listed above along with the link to schedule.
Question: Can I still walk in?
Answer: Yes, but remember there may be employees who scheduled times before you and they come first.
Question: I was out of work for a period of time and just returned a few months ago. Do I still need to complete my annual health assessment?
Answer: Yes. When you came back, you may have had return-to-work drug and alcohol testing. If your annual assessment was due, you would have had it at that time. Otherwise, you will still need to complete your annual health assessment during your birth month.
Question: What is included in my annual health assessment?
Answer: Review of your health status; height and weight; blood pressure; placement of the Mantoux skin test for tuberculosis (if not previously positive); and review of your immunization history. Your health office also provides information on several health-related topics and can help you with a referral to a primary care provider if you would like one. You may also meet with our Employee Health and Wellness Coordinator if you have questions regarding your own health and wellness goals.
Question: When do I need to have my arm read after having a Mantoux skin test?
Answer: The test must be read 48 to 72 hours after it is placed on your arm. You can visit either health office to have your arm read, no appointment needed.
