University of Arkansas at Little Rock employees who complete a biometric assessment at the employee wellness fair Wednesday, July 27, may qualify for a $1,400 reduction in out-of-pocket medical expenses for the 2017 health plan.

The event is open to all UALR employees and will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 27 in Donaghey Student Center Ledbetter A, B, and C.

Those with University of Arkansas System (UMR) insurance can complete their biometric assessment to qualify for a $1,400 reduction in the maximum amount of out-of-pocket medical expenses for the 2017 health plan. Employees who cover their spouse and/or children in the health plan may be eligible for a reduction of up to $2,800.  

Employees who complete an online health assessment, agree to the tobacco/nicotine pledge and the personal health plan pledge, and complete the biometric screening and nicotine test by Sept. 30 will qualify for the reduction.

Employees who do not have UMR insurance can take advantage of free health screenings, including height, weight, body mass index, cholesterol, glucose, blood pressure, and body composition.

Students from Touching America Massage School will give free massages, and employees from Rock City Running Store will give advice on running and walking shoes.

Representatives from the Employee Assistance Program, American Heart Association, and the UALR Office of Counseling Services, along with UMR health coaches, will be on site to meet with employees.

A drawing for a $50 Visa gift card will be held every hour.
