Health Assessment Instructions


The State Health Benefits Program (SHBP) Retiree Wellness Program Health Assessment is a private and secure online questionnaire about your medical history and lifestyle habits. Responses to the questionnaire help:

  • Measure your current health status
  • Determine health risks
  • Offer a plan of action to help you get and stay as healthy as possible.

Eligible SHBP retirees who are enrolled in the SHBP Retiree Wellness Program must complete the health assessment annually by December 31 to stay enrolled in the program.

Eligible SHBP retirees who did not enroll in the SHBP Retiree Wellness Program when initially invited or who were terminate for noncompliance must complete the health assessment between January 1 and October 31 to enroll in the program for the following calendar year.

Newly eligible retirees receive a letter detailing how to enroll and remain enrolled in the SHBP Retiree Wellness Program. They must complete the health assessment within two months of their retirement date or the date of our letter, whichever is later.

If you haven’t had an annual physical yet this year, complete the health assessment with the information you have available so you meet your deadline. Once you have your next checkup, you can retake your health assessment to update your cholesterol, blood pressure and other health data.
