Health for Life 3-Step Wellness Check


What is the Health for Life 3-Step Wellness Check?

The Health for Life 3-Step Wellness Check, available to U.S. blue-badge employees, is a convenient and confidential way for you to understand and evaluate your health. You will save $250 on your 2012 annual medical plan paycheck deductions and up to $50 in American Express gift cards if you participate between Dec. 2010 and Nov. 2011. You may participate in the program every 12 months.

A word about privacy: Intel understands the importance of your privacy and is committed to making sure your personal information remains private and completely confidential. See the Wellness Program Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

To participate follow these three simple steps:

Step 1: Schedule your onsite Health Check

Schedule your annual 15-minute appointment at an onsite Health for Life Center. Your appointment with a certified health care professional will include a blood draw and the recording of basic measurements. You may complete a Health check every 12 months. If you are a remote employee or located at a site that does not offer the program onsite, review the remote employee participation information to learn how you can participate in the program.

Note: In order to obtain accurate blood draw results, it is important that you fast by not eating or drinking (with the exception of water) for at least 12 hours prior to your appointment. Drinking plenty of water the morning of your appointment is encouraged, especially if you exercise.

Step 2: Complete the online Mayo Clinic Health Assessment

You will receive your health check results within two weeks via e-mail from Take Care Health Systems. Use these measurements to complete the online Mayo Clinic Health Assessment questionnaire (a link will be included in the e-mail). The assessment takes about 20 minutes.

Once you have completed the assessment, your results will be available online immediately in the form of a Personal Health Report. After completing the health assessment, you will be prompted to set your wellness goal on the Mayo Clinic website via the MyCoach tool.

Note: You must complete Step 2, the online Mayo Clinic Health Assessment and set your personal wellness goal via the MyCoach tool, by November 2011 to receive the $250 savings on your 2012 medical plan. Once you complete Step 2 and set your personal health goal, you will be automatically prompted to fill out the preferred pricing incentive form on the Mayo Clinic website.

Step 3: Meet with Your Wellness Coach.

A wellness coach will contact you and schedule via Outlook a 1:1 coaching session at your Health for Life Center.

Together you will review your Personal Health Report and develop an action plan to address your personal health needs.

Depending on your personal goals and needs, you will have access to additional coaching sessions, referred to enhanced coaching. Enhanced coaching is typically four or more sessions with a 6-month period. Availability of enhanced coaching sessions include:
  • In-person or group coaching with an onsite wellness coach
  • Telephonic coaching with a Mayo clinic EmboydHealth Coach
  • Online coaching via MyCoach available on the Mayo Clinic website
You will recive a $50 gift card for completing enhanced coaching. You must enroll through the Mayo Clinic Reward Program to receive the $50 gift card.
