Develop a Personal Plan for Healthy Living

The Health Assessment or Kaiser Permanente Health Profile is a quick, easy and confidential questionnaire that offers you a snapshot of your health and health risks and helps you create a roadmap to healthy living.

Each year, the Trust offers participants the opportunity to take the Health Assessment or Health Profile. If you and your eligible spouse or covered domestic partner both complete it when offered in the fall of 2022, you could save hundreds on your 2023 medical expenses.

The Health Assessment

The Health Assessment is a confidential questionnaire about health and lifestyle habits. It’s quick and easy to complete and gives you immediate results to help you find ways to improve or maintain your health. It can also help you save money if you complete it when offered in the fall of 2022.

If you, and your eligible spouse or covered domestic partner 18 years of age and older, both take your annual Health Assessment during the incentive period in the fall of 2022, you may receive the following incentives:

  • Medical Plan A, B, C, and Z – your annual deductible in 2023 will be $200 less for individual coverage and up to $600 less for family coverage than if you do not take it.
  • Medical Plan JC28XL – your out-of-pocket maximum in 2023 will be $200 less, than if you do not take it.

To complete your Health Assessment when offered and earn the incentive, login or register for an account at wateamsters.vivacity.com. You can also log in anytime to view your last assessment results, find out about programs you may be eligible for, and learn more.

The Health Assessment is provided by Vivacity, an independent health management service provider. Your responses to the questions are completely confidential, protected by federal law, and cannot be shared with the Trust, your union or your employer without your permission.
How to Take Your Health Assessment

Taking your confidential Health Assessment is quick and easy. On your first visit to the Trust’s Vivacity site you will be asked to register by creating a username, short personal profile, setting up security questions and a password. You’ll then be taken directly to the Assessment when you visit during the incentive period offered in the fall of 2022. If you have health-related information like your blood pressure or cholesterol levels, it would be helpful to gather these numbers in advance so you can get a more accurate result when taking your annual Health Assessment.

Once complete, your Assessment will offer immediate results on how you can improve your health, and any programs that may be available to you. You can even print a certificate of your completion if you would like.

Throughout the year you can log in and update your Assessment at any time, though you’ll only receive the incentive to save on your 2023 medical expenses if you take it when offered in the fall.

Next Steps After the Health Assessment

Based on your answers to the Health Assessment you may be invited to enroll in one, or several, of the wellness programs offered by the Trust. You may be contacted by phone or mail to participate in the voluntary programs that may be relevant to you.

Benefits of Taking Your Health Profile

The Health Profile is an online questionnaire and report that takes an in-depth look at your unique health history and lifestyle to help you and your doctor take better control of your health.

In the questionnaire, you’ll be asked about your medical history and your lifestyle routines. If you receive primary care at a Kaiser Permanente Medical Centers location, certain information from your medical record will already be included, such as your most recent blood pressure reading and cholesterol levels.

After you submit the questionnaire, you will receive an online report with your health status, your risk for certain diseases, and suggestions for improving your health. When you update your profile — every year, or more often if you’d like — you’ll see a comparison to what’s changed since your last profile.
