Use Registration Code: Caesars if you are newly registering.

Please remember to arrive 10 minutes early to ensure a smooth check in, and allow extra time post screening to review your results and wellness plan with your wellness team.  

 

You and your enrolled spouse must complete a biometric screening by November 30th to save on medical premiums for the first half of the year. Fasting is recommended to obtain the most accurate results possible. Biometric screenings provide a snapshot of key health care numbers and can help you understand your current health status, identify risks, and focus on ways to maintain or improve your health. Screenings are quick and confidential and consist of four clinical health factors: Body composition or body mass index (BMI), Blood pressure, Cholesterol, Glucose (blood sugar).

Participants may be eligible to earn a bonus payment into their HRA or HSA and/or need to complete the condition management program if biometric screening values fall within the goals criteria by category, outlined in the Goals chart below. Each biometric value can earn $125 per value within the program bonus goal range.

Knowing your numbers can empower you to make lifestyle changes and reduce your risk of developing serious chronic diseases. Know where to go to complete your screening? Check out your options in the Frequently Asked Questions section below.

Goals

You got your screening, so what does it all mean? Your biometric screening results determine whether you are required to participate in condition management and whether you qualify for a bonus payment into your HRA or HSA account.

In order to qualify for the outcomes based bonus, participants must have a prior plan year biometric screening (completed before June 1st ) and complete current year biometric screening before November 30th. If you are new to Caesars benefits, bonus eligibility is based on your unique program deadlines. Consult with your WellNurse for bonus eligibility.

This year we’ve made some changes to the biometric screening levels that drive these requirements. The table below outlines the new criteria. Note the new middle level for body composition (BMI), glucose and cholesterol where you no longer have to complete condition management and don’t qualify for a bonus.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I prepare for my biometric screening? Should I fast?

There are several things you can do to get the most accurate biometric screening reading.

  • Fasting: when you eat or drink, your blood sugar level may increase. Fasting ensures accurate biometric results and may increase bonus eligibility. To get the most accurate glucose reading, we recommend you fast for 8 hours prior to your screening. Fasting means that you have not had anything to eat or drink which includes (but not limited to) coffee, energy drinks, soda, cough drops, breath mints, or gum.
  • Stay hydrated! Please drink at least 16 oz. of water the day of your screening.
  • Take your medications regularly. Please remember to take your medications per your doctor’s recommendations. This is important, especially if you are on medication to regulate your blood sugar, cholesterol, or blood pressure.

By doing these simple steps, you can help your biometric numbers be as accurate as possible. Remember, biometric screening results determine whether you’ll be required to complete condition management and if you qualify for a bonus.

Where can I go to complete my biometric screening?

You can choose from the following options to complete your biometric screening each year:

  • Sign up for an onsite biometric screening event (during fall months) – see FAQ regarding onsite events
  • Schedule an appointment at your Onsite Health & Wellness Center (where available)
  • Schedule an appointment with your onsite WellNurse (where available)
  • See your own in-network primary care physician and submit a biometric screening form

 

What is blood pressure?

Blood pressure measures how hard blood pushes against the artery walls as it moves through your body. It is normal for blood pressure to go up and down throughout the day, but if it stays elevated you are at risk for hypertension (high blood pressure). High blood pressure can damage vital organs such as your heart and kidneys, which can lead to heart attack, stroke, or other health problems.

Did You Know?

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), about 1 in 3 adults has prehypertension—blood pressure numbers that are higher than normal—but not yet in the high blood pressure range. More alarming, about 1 of 3 adults—or about 75 million people—have high blood pressure. Only about half (54%) of these people have their high blood pressure under control. This common condition increases the risk for heart disease and stroke, two of the leading causes of death for Americans. For more information on blood pressure visit cdc.gov/bloodpressure or speak to your onsite Wellness team.

What is Body Mass Index (BMI)?

Your BMI is a calculation of height and weight. Having a healthy weight is more than just a number; it lowers your risk for health problems.

Did You Know?

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), more than one-third (36.5%) of adults are obese. Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer – some of the leading causes of preventable death. In addition, it can lead to arthritis, sleep disorders, and overall reduced quality of life. For more information on how BMI impacts your health risks visit cdc.gov/healthyweight or speak to your onsite Wellness team.

Why does the body composition (BMI) measure now include blood pressure and cholesterol criteria?

Combinations of risk factors such as blood pressure, cholesterol, and obesity increase the chance that you have metabolic syndrome. This, in turn, further increases the risk you will develop heart disease, diabetes, or suffer a stroke. Adjusting the body composition values to include additional factors means those at greater risk will meet the onsite WellNurse to discuss and complete programs designed to help reduce those risks.

What is glucose?

Glucose is a sugar your body uses for energy. Your pancreas produces insulin which allows glucose to enter body cells, where it is used for energy. If your body produces little to no insulin, you are at risk for developing diabetes.

Did You Know?

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), more than 29 million adults have diabetes, and 25% of them don’t know it. Diabetes can lead to heart attack and stroke and is the leading cause of kidney failure, lower-limb amputations, and adult-onset blindness. About 86 million adults—more than a third—have pre-diabetes, and 90% of them don’t know it. Pre-diabetes is a serious health condition which increases the risk of type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases. For more information on diabetes visit cdc.gov/diabetes or speak to your onsite Wellness team.

What is cholesterol?

Cholesterol is a type of fat in your blood. Your body needs some cholesterol, but too much can build up in your arteries and increase your risk for heart disease.

Did You Know?

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), more than 71 million adults (33.5%) have high low- density lipoprotein (LDL), or “bad,” cholesterol. Only 1 out of every 3 adults with high LDL cholesterol has the condition under control and less than half of adults with high LDL cholesterol get treatment. Lowering your cholesterol can reduce your risk of having a heart attack, needing heart bypass surgery or angioplasty, and dying of heart disease. For more information on cholesterol visit cdc.gov/cholesterol or speak to your onsite Wellness team.

Can I complete my biometric screening and annual physical at the same appointment?

Yes, as long as your annual physical is due at the time of biometric screening, the annual physical can be completed at the same time. Check with your medical plan carrier to make sure your annual physical will be covered at 100 percent.

How do I know when the biometric screening events are occurring at my property?

Onsite events typically happen late fall. Some properties will have mini-events throughout the year. Check with your Human Resource representative or your onsite WellNurse for upcoming event schedules.

Do I need to bring a form to my primary care physician?

Yes, if you are getting a biometric screening from your primary care physician, you must have your physician complete Biometric Screening Form. You can also pick up a copy of the form from your WellNurse office. If you complete your biometric screening at an Onsite Health & Wellness Center, an onsite biometric screening event or at a WellNurse office, the form will be provided for you.

Where do I send my signed and completed biometric screening form?

You may fax your form to 855-816- 3504, or drop it by your onsite WellNurse’s office. It is your responsibility to follow up with the Wellness team to ensure they received your form. Call 800-591- 9220 or click on the Wellness Tracker button in the upper right corner to ensure it has been processed.

What if I’m missing information on my form?

All information is required for your screening to be considered completed, including a signature from you and the medical professional completing your screening. Double check your form before turning it in to ensure all information is completed.

How many biometric screenings can I get?

The program covers one screening a year. If you are unsatisfied with your results, you may rescreen, but this may result in additional costs. Screenings completed at an onsite event trump all other screenings. Speak to your onsite WellNurse for more information about rescreening.

Is the biometric screening covered by Caesars benefit plan?

Yes. Your annual biometric screening is considered a preventative screening and is covered at 100% by your medical plan.

How can I best prepare for my biometric screening?

The best way to prepare for your biometric screening is to fast at least 8 hours before your screening. Eating before a biometric screening may negatively affect test results – even for healthy people. Remember, biometric screening results determine whether you’ll be required to complete condition management and if you qualify for a bonus. Make your results more accurate by avoiding food and only drinking water for at least 8 hours before your screening. Be sure to also take any prescription medications as directed by your doctor.

Do I need to bring anything with me to the onsite screening?

You will need to present your Caesars employee ID or your government issued photo ID and your medical card when you check in for your screening appointment. If you do not have your medical ID, you can find a copy on the Benefits Villa App. Log in using your ClearCost username and password, ID cards are located on the bottom row. Don’t have the app? Search for “Caesars Benefits Villa App” in either Apple Store or Google Play store on your smart phone.

Bonus Eligibility: Who is eligible for a bonus payment and how does it work?

Who is eligible: Participants must have a prior plan year biometric screening (completed before June 1st ) and must complete a current year biometric screening (before November 30th ) to be eligible for bonus payments. Newly eligible participants should consult with their WellNurse to confirm bonus eligibility. If you are enrolled in the HMO plan, you are not eligible to receive a bonus as your health plan does not come with an HRA or HSA.

How it works: Each eligible participant earns $125 for each biometric screening metric meeting the “Bonus Earned” criteria (up to $500 if criteria are met in all four categories). Bonus dollars are deposited into your HRA or HSA on a quarterly basis, beginning January of the following plan year.

If you have concerns about your ability to complete Wellness Rewards program activities or requirements listed above, please see your WellNurse or call 800-591-9220 to discuss alternatives. If your current circumstances will prevent you from achieving the results required for earning the wellness bonus, we will work with you to develop a wellness program that is best suited to those circumstances.

If I am enrolled in the HMO plan, do I still need to participate in Wellness Rewards?

Yes, employees and covered spouses enrolled in the HMO network are still eligible to participate in the Wellness Rewards program. If you and your spouse don’t participate in Wellness Rewards, you will be subject to the $650 ($1,300 for employee and spouse) medical plan premium increase per phase not completed.

If I am enrolled in the HMO plan, am I still eligible to earn the Wellness Rewards goal bonus?

No, employees and covered spouses enrolled in the HMO plan are not eligible to receive the bonus as the plan does not have a medical plan account to deposit bonus funds.
