Your school district, which is a member of Huron-Erie School Employee Insurance Association (“HESE”), makes a wellness incentive available to all employees enrolled, through your school district, in the HESE Health Benefit Plan who complete a voluntary health risk assessment (“HRA”) and a voluntary biometric screening. The incentive is offered in accordance with federal rules permitting employer-sponsored wellness programs that seek to improve employee health or prevent disease, including the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008, and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”), as applicable, among others. If you choose to complete the HRA, you will be asked a series of questions about your health-related activities and behaviors and whether you have or had certain medical conditions (e.g., cancer, diabetes, or heart disease). If you choose to participate in the biometric screening, it will include a blood test for high cholesterol and diabetes. You are not required to complete the HRA or to participate in the blood test or other examinations. For more information click the link provided.
