What are the details?

Biometric Screening

  • Due to COVID-19, IYL staff will not be coming on-site to County locations for health screens.
  • Biometric screening information (height, weight, blood pressure and lab values) collected after January 1, 2019 will be accepted for enrollment in 2021.  You may already have this information available in your medical record.
  • If you do not have biometric information, you will need to complete the required screens with your primary care physician.   
    • If your physician does not use the Epic electronic medical record, you must download the IYL physician results form. Take the form to your physician, have it completed and faxed to IYL. (This form is also available on the Jackson County intranet.)

Health Assessment (HA)

Health coaching sessions

  • During your health coaching sessions, you will discuss the results of your biometric screening and your health assessment, set goals for living a healthy lifestyle and work with your coach to create an action plan.
