About the Primary Care Provider Attestation
New in the fall of 2020, the Primary Care Provider Attestation is one of the three options (along with Tobacco Attestation and Biometric Screening) that are offered for faculty and staff who want to earn the Monthly Wellness Incentive in 2021.
The Primary Care Provider Attestation form can be found in on the Wellness Tile within HCM.
All Wellness Participants must complete the Health Risk Assessment, then complete two of the three other options on or before November 30, 2020.
Primary Care Provider (PCP) Attestation
Numerous benefits are associated with having a primary care provider (PCP). Not only do regular visits with a PCP encourage preventive exam compliance (e.g., colonoscopy, mammograms, etc.), but they also lead to increased rates of necessary immunizations. Recent data analysis from our annual Health Risk Assessment (HRA) process indicates that our faculty and staff compliance with screening exams and immunizations is not as strong as other higher education benchmark groups.
By completing this form, participants confirm that they have a Primary Care Provider (PCP) and have met with that professional at least once in the past year for a health care appointment or have an upcoming appointment with that PCP in 2020.
