UMD Employee Wellness Program
Biometric Health Screening

UPlan members, you can gain a better understanding of your health and earn 150 points for your Wellness Points Bank by participating in health screenings. There are no out of pocket charges for UPlan members as well as UPlan covered spouses or same-sex domestic partners.

For your Biometric screening to count toward your Wellness Points Bank, Boynton Health Service or UMD QuickCare Clinic MUST submit your screening result to Staywell, the company who manages the Wellness Points Bank system. Staywell will then enter the results which will appear in your wellness assessment information approximately within one month of screening.

Tests offered in each screening session include:

  • Total Cholesterol*
  • HDL and LDL Cholesterol*
  • Blood Pressure
  • Blood Glucose
  • Body Mass Index and Composition

*For a fasting cholesterol test, individuals must fast for at least 8 hours before testing.

Requirements at the time of appointment:

1. For a fasting cholesterol test, you must fast (not eat anything) for at least eight hours before testing. You may drink water. Coffee, tea, or pop may interfere with the test and should be avoided.

2. Photo ID

  • Employees - must show your UCard or photo ID
  • Spouse/Same-sex domestic partner - must show photo ID

IMPORTANT NOTICE: You must show a photo ID on the day of your appointment. If you cannot show a photo ID, a biometic screening will be conducted for your own information only. Boynton Health Service will not be able to submit the results to StayWell and therefore no points will be recorded for your Wellness Points Bank.
