Know your health — take a health assessment
A health assessment is a short quiz about your health. You answer questions about your health history and habits. The assessment lets you know if you have any injury risks and unhealthy habits.
What happens next?
- After you answer all of the questions, you will get a wellness score. The higher your score, the better your current health.
- Low scores? Don’t panic! Take your results seriously, but know that you can change your health. We’ll even show you how. Your results include tips about how to help control your risks.
- Do you have questions about your scores? Print the physician summary to share with your doctor or provider. The summary gives information for you and your doctor to talk about to help maintain your health.
