Notice Regarding Wellness Program

The Duquesne University Know Your Numbers (KYN) campaign is a voluntary wellness program available to all benefits eligible employees. The program is administered according to federal rules permitting employer -sponsored wellness programs that seek to improve employee health or prevent disease, including the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008, and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, as applicable, among others. If you choose to participate in KYN, you will be asked to complete a voluntary health risk assessment or "HRA" that asks a series of questions about your health-related activities and behaviors and whether you have or had certain medical conditions (e.g., cancer, diabetes, or heart disease). You will also be asked to complete a biometric screening, which will include a blood test for cholesterol and blood glucose levels. You are not required to complete the HRA or to participate in the blood test or other medical examinations.

However, employees who choose to participate in KYN will receive an incentive of $250 for completion. Although you are not required to complete the HRA or participate in the biometric screening, only employees who do so will receive the $250. The information from your HRA and the results from your biometric screening will be used to provide you with information to help you understand your current health and potential risks, and may be used to offer you services through the wellness program, such as Center for Pharmacy Care or medical plan counseling. You also are encouraged to share your results or concerns with your own doctor.
