The goal of these activities is to identify your risk for health issues, such as high blood pressure or diabetes, which may be prevented through early detection and lifestyle changes. All lab work results and assessment responses are confidential.

FAQs

How do I qualify for the 2023 preferred premium?

  1. Complete a biometric screening by December 20, 2022. This screening identifies potential health risks by measuring blood pressure, height, weight, waist circumference, cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose and HgbA1C (optional test which measures your average blood sugar level). Access both screening options through My.QuestForHealth.com and enter PinellasCounty22 as the registration key.

How can I check whether I completed my biometric screening and/or health assessment this year?

Use the new Biometric Screening & Health Assessment Completion Help Guide to view step-by-step instructions with screenshots from the Cigna website to confirm completion.

What if I got my biometric screening done before the Quest site was available online, or I got lab work done and did not use either option?

You have two choices: 

  • Visit My.QuestForHealth.com, download the physician form and have your doctor fill it out. 
  • If you prefer, you could schedule another blood draw using the direct-to-Quest Patient Service Center appointment scheduler.

Do I need to set up a new account on My.QuestForHealth.com if I used the Rally Quest site last year?

Yes. The new site is due to the new partnership with Cigna; therefore, it is necessary to set up a new account using PinellasCounty22 as the registration key. Once you complete the process, you will also be able to access your data from last year.

What if I complete my health assessment before doing my biometric screening?

You can do so, but it is recommended that you complete the biometric screening first so that the data will auto-fill in the assessment. The assessment will provide a more accurate snapshot of your overall health if it includes your current biometric data.

You can take the assessment as many times as you wish. Cigna recommends doing it twice yearly. 

If you do the assessment first and don’t want to do it again after your biometric screening, you will still receive credit for completing both items.
