Mississippi Bend AEA Health Screenings
Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency along with Molloy Wellness is offering health screenings for all employees and their spouses again this year. The basic health screening is provided at no cost to employees, and any optional tests and/or screenings for spouses will require payment at the time of service. Receipts will be provided which can be used for reimbursement from health insurance under the $400 preventive care benefit; or through your Tax Saver medical reimbursement plan (please note that Tax Saver will only reimburse for screenings used to determine the presence of a disease or dysfunction of the body, such as tests to detect heart attack, stroke, diabetes, osteoporosis, thyroid conditions, cholesterol and cancer. Tests for general well being would not be eligible.) Forms will be available at the screenings.
The basic health screening will include the following components with immediate results: heart rate, blood pressure, height, weight, lower back flexibility, body composition, blood glucose, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, the ratio of the total to HDL cholesterol. Other optional tests include: Colo-Care Take Home Kit, Prostate Specific Antigen blood test, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), Hemoglobin & Hematocrit (H&H), Complete Metabolic Panel (MET) and Bone Density Heel Scan.
