What is a health assessment?

A wellness check consists of 2 parts: a health risk assessment questionnaire and a biometric screening. It is personal and confidential, and because they contain personal health information, they are subject to the HIPAA Privacy laws. Participation in a wellness is completely voluntary and is not required of any employee.
