Frequently Asked Questions

What is a health screening? A screening is a 15-minute checkup with a professional medical provider. The screening measures common biometric indicators such as blood pressure, weight, cholesterol, body mass index, and more. For the most accurate results, fasting for 8 hours prior to the screening is recommended. Immediately following the screening, the provider will provide you a copy of your results on paper and briefly review them with you.

Who is eligible? Free health screenings are available to 1) full-time, benefit-eligible faculty and staff; and 2) their spouses who are enrolled in a Notre Dame medical plan. Eligibility for credits/rewards requires completion of a screening by the deadline.

What are the “credits”? The $180 credit is a $15/month credit toward medical premium deductions for 12 months beginning January 1, and the $96 credit is an additional $8/month.

Who will know my results? Nobody but you and your medical provider. The Notre Dame Wellness Center (operated by Premise Health) and Memorial Health & Lifestyle assure privacy of screening services in accordance with applicable state and federal laws. The University of Notre Dame has no access to personal health information obtained by Premise Health nor Memorial Health & Lifestyle, including information entered into the Wellness Center Patient Portal.
