Annual Physical & Preventive Screenings
Preventive healthcare for Healthy Steps includes a biometric screening, and mammogram and colonoscopy for those whose age and gender apply.
Employees and spouse/partners who are on the Einstein health plan as of October 1, 2017.
- Have an annual physical - which must include a biometric screening
- Plan members need to let their physicians know the biometrics they need to get. We aren't using fax forms anymore, which previously listed out the biometrics for physicians to complete. The biometrics plan members still need to get include: height, weight, blood pressure, total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and HBA1C or glucose
- If you and/or your spouse/partner are age 50 or older, provide confirmation on the RedBrick portal or app that you and/or your spouse/partner had a colonoscopy within the last 10 years
- This confirmation only needs to be entered into the portal once every 10 years
- If you and/or your spouse/partner are age 40 or older and female, provide confirmation on the RedBrick portal or app that you and/or your spouse/partner had a mammogram once every two years*
- If you and/or your spouse/partner are age 50 or older and female, provide confirmation on the RedBrick portal or app that you and/or your spouse/partner had a mammogram every year*
- *As a result of conflicting opinions around mammogram guidelines from reputable societies and organizations, Einstein made adjustments to the breast cancer screening requirement in the Healthy Steps program. While the requirement has changed, Einstein's breast health experts believe that the benefits of getting an annual mammogram outweigh the risks and help to diagnose cancer at an earlier age. As a result, our health plan will continue to cover annual screening mammograms for women 40 years and older.
