THE ANNUAL HEALTH SCREENING EVENT ENDS SEPTEMBER 30, 2018!
During the Annual Health Screening event, UFCW Union Local 227 hourly participants are encouraged to complete a series of quick, preventive tests known as a Health Screening! By completing the screening, participants can KNOW THEIR NUMBERS and work with their primary care physician to identify health problems early.
If I complete the Health Screening, am I enrolled in benefits for 2019?
No! In order to have benefits for 2019, you must complete your online enrollment during November's Annual Enrollment. If you are eligible for benefits, you can enroll in coverage whether or not you complete your Health Screening. A Health Screening is not required for enrollment in benefits.
What if I am unable to complete a Health Screening or meet my targets?

Do I have to fast before completing the screening?
Yes, you must fast for 9 hours prior to the screening. If you have not fasted, you will be instructed to reschedule. Fasting means no food or drink; water is permissible and encouraged.
Why should I complete a health screening?
Not only will participants get an updated status of their health, but by completing this screening, participants in certain eligible classes may qualify for better medical benefits during the 2019 plan year.
