The Kentucky Employees’ Health Plan offers LivingWell, a free wellness program all members 18 years of age and older. This wellness and incentive program helps members enjoy a healthier and happier life. Participants are encouraged to log in to KEHPlivingwell.com to complete a simple health risk assessment and obtain a Biometric Check. The program offers rewards and web-based tools to help members plan and reach their lifestyle and fitness goals.
KEHP has contracted with Lake Cumberland District Health Department to provide the Biometric Check free to its members. The Biometric Check comprises of labs and biometric screenings (see below) which can be used to calculate the participant’s current health risks and develop a customized program to address any problem areas. Biometric Checks include:
| • Lab Work:
o Total Cholesterol
| • Biometric Check Includes:
o Blood Pressure
o Waist Measurement
Lab testing is performed on blood obtained from a finger stick, preferably after a 9 hour fast to assure accurate results. These results will be available in approximately 10 minutes and will be recorded in an informational pamphlet that includes normal ranges and recommendations to reduce risk factors. Participants will also receive one-on-one counseling if necessary and will be referred to their medical provider for further evaluation.
Participants can use online tracking tools to view their progress toward achieving a healthier lifestyle. Bucks can be earned by completing activities such as getting a Biometric Check, working out, completing education segments, etc. These Bucks can be redeemed to purchase items from the online mall.
LCDHD provides these screenings onsite, so if you are interested, please call 800-928-4416 EXT 1158.
