University of Arkansas at Little Rock employees who complete a biometric assessment at the employee wellness health fair Tuesday, July 25, may qualify for a $1,400 reduction in out-of-pocket medical expenses for their health plan. 

The health fair is open to all UA Little Rock employees and will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 25 in Donaghey Student Center Ledbetter A and B.

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 2018 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 take the following action by Sept. 30 will qualify for the reduction:

  • Complete an online health assessment
  • Agree to the tobacco/nicotine pledge and the personal health plan pledge included in the online health assessment
  • Participate in a biometric screening

Those 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.

Free chair massages will be available to all wellness fair participants from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Employees from Rock City Running Store will give advice on running and walking shoes.

Representatives from the Employee Assistance Program, American Heart Association, Arkansas Heart Hospital, Onlife, and the UA Little Rock Office of Counseling Services will be on site to meet with employees.

Free food will be available. A drawing for a $25 gift card will be held every hour.
