Our partners, University Pharmacy and Ulliance, work together to combine your enrollment Biometric Health Screening data and your online Health Risk Assessment data and compute your risk level.
Human Resources and the Wellness Warriors Program Administration DOES NOT RECEIVE your health information nor your risk level. You are protected by HIPAA, the laws governing personal health information.
Low Risk: 0-2 Risks
Moderate Risk: 3-4 Risks

Each of the following risks are considered when calculating your Risk Level:

|Health Age Index||This index compares the appraised and the achievable age of a participant. The appraised age is a derived age corresponding to a person’s health risk. The achievable age is a derived age calculated by modifying all controllable health risks. If the difference between the appraised age and the achievable age is greater than 4, the person is high risk for a future adverse event.|
