Health Assessment Questionnaire

The Health Assessment Questionnaire should be your first stop after gaining access to the HealthQuest portal. This assessment takes less than 15 minutes, and provides a baseline estimate of your wellness risk factors in a variety of areas. The results of this assessment can be useful in identifying your personal wellness goals and determining which wellness activities will have the greatest benefit in helping you to reach those goals. In addition, you will earn 10 points upon completion of the questionnaire.

Note: Effective as of 2019, the Health Assessment Questionnaire is no longer a requirement for participation in the premium discount or HSA/HRA rewards dollars incentive programs.

Preventative Wellness

HealthQuest and the State Employee Health Plan (SEHP) reward those who make their personal wellness a priority. There are many healthy behaviors encouraged by medical professionals to promote overall wellness. Attending regularly scheduled check-ups is one of the most common ways to maintain overall wellness over a lifetime, and can help catch potential health problems so that they can be corrected and maintained early on. You can earn points by attending the appointments you would anyway, and make your health and wellness a priority!

  • Annual Well-Woman or Well-Man exam - 5 points
  • Semi-annual dental exam and cleaning - 6 points (3 per visit)
  • Annual vision exam - 3 points
  • Mammogram - 5 points
  • Colonoscopy - 5 points
  • Flu Vaccine - 3 points
  • Covid-19 Vaccine - 3 points (must report via your HealthQuest Portal)

Employees must use SEHP medical, dental, and vision coverage and do not need to provide proof of these appointments. These points will be logged in your HealthQuest portal automatically as the insurance claim is processed, typically within 7-10 business days of the appointment. 

Attend In-Person Events

On-Campus Biometric Screenings

On-campus biometric screenings are a popular way to easily earn points without having to leave campus. A few simple tests are run in-person, and results are available when you leave. Each attendee earns 5 points just for attending. When you meet the ideal ranges for Blood Pressure, Blood Cholesteral, and Blood Glucose you earn 6 points for each category. That's a maximum possible 23 points from one event!

Appointments must be scheduled in advance, and the available times fill up quickly! Log in to the HealthQuest portal to secure your appointment today! Click on "Biometric Screenings" from the top row of images, then click the Calendar icon to launch the scheduling site.

Hint: If a member doesn't meet the ideal range for one or more of the measurement categories, specific online Learning Modules can be taken after the screening date to earn the point values instead. Additionally, moving from High to Moderate risk categories from one program year to the next will earn the points, even if the values measured are not within the ideal range.

Online Wellness Activities

Program Overview Video and Quiz

Upon logging into the HealthQuest portal, members can earn 3 points by watching a short program overview video and taking a brief quiz. In addition to earning points right away, this video introduces new users to various wellness activities and navigation of the portal.

EAP Webinars

As part of the Employee Assistance Program (EAP), monthly webinars are available for HealthQuest credits. This webinar series delves into personal wellness topics far deeper than nutrition or exercise, touching on subjects such as self-motivation and goal-setting techniques. Resources are made available for attendees to access after the webinar airs, allowing for continued application of the principles taught in each event. These webinars are offered at set times, and members must register before attending. Members receive 1 point for each webinar they attend, up to a maximum of 10 points per program year.

For a list of topics and registration links, please visit the the SEHP EAP Webinar page

Hint: Members can register in advance for any or all EAP webinars. Upon registration, there is an option to download an Outlook or IOS event, which will create a reminder in your calendar.

Wellness Challenges

HealthQuest Wellness Challenges are a combination of online tracking and real-life wellness practices. Topics are typically aimed at building a specific healthy habit, such as drinking more water or eating more fruits & veggies. Each challenge can be accessed through the HealthQuest portal or the HealthyNow app during the timeframe specified. Credits will be awarded on the portal automatically upon completion of each challenge. Each challenge value is the number of weeks (i.e., 2 week challenge = 2 points), up to a maximum of 30 points per program year.

Participation in the challenges requires registration. To register, log into the HealthQuest portal the week prior to the start of each challenge.

Hint: Participation for a certain number of days each week is required to earn credits (typically 5 of 7 days). Information can be retroactively logged, but not logged for the future.

Learning Modules

Learning Modules (formerly called Wellness Workshops) are self-guided programs targeted at specific wellness goals or chronic conditions. Most modules span multiple weeks, with readings and videos available for 7 days before the next week's become available. Each week must be completed before the following week's information becomes available. Members earn 1 point for each successfully completed module, up to a maximum of 12 points per program year.  Additionally, there are Financial Learning modules worth 5 points each, up to a maximum of 10 points per program year.

For member who attends a Biometric Screening but have one or more measurement values that do not qualify for points with base value or risk category improvement, the following Learning Modules can be completed instead:

  • Blood Pressure: CCE Controlling Blood Pressure Module
  • Glucose: CCE Managing Your Blood Sugar Module
  • Cholesterol:  CCE Controlling Your Blood Cholesterol

Hint: Most Learning Modules require only a few minutes of activity per week, and many can be taken simultaneously.

Other Opportunities and Events

Coaches work with members on different wellness goals and chronic conditions, including, but not limited to, high blood pressure, depression, anxiety, and weight management.

Wondr Health is a free, ten-week, online weight management program for which members can earn 10 points per program year.
