    NOTICE REGARDING WELLNESS PROGRAM

    The Parkway School District Employee wellness program is a voluntary wellness program available to all employees. The program is administered according to federal rules permitting employer-sponsored wellness programs that seek to improve employee health or prevent disease, including the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008, and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, as applicable, among others. If you choose to participate in the wellness program you will be asked to complete a voluntary biometric screening, which will include a blood test for cholesterol and glucose. You are not required to participate in the blood test or other medical examinations.

    However, employees who choose to participate in the clinic incentive program will receive an incentive of $50. Although you are not required to complete the biometric screening or get an annual wellness exam, or be seen at the Care ATC clinic, only employees who do so will receive the incentive.

    If you are unable to participate in any of the health-related activities required to earn an incentive, you may be entitled to a reasonable accommodation or an alternative standard.  Recommendations of an individual’s personal physician will be accommodated. You may request a reasonable accommodation or an alternative standard by contacting Brian Whittle, Director of Benefits at bwhittle@parkwayschools.net or 415-8060 or Tierra Morris, Benefits Coordinator at tmorris@parkwayschools.net or 415-8058.

    The results from your biometric screening and annual wellness exam will be used to provide you with information to help you understand your current health and potential risks, and may also be used to offer you services through the your employee wellness program (a referral for programs given to you from the physician you saw) . You also are encouraged to share your biometric screening results or concerns with your own doctor.

    Protections from Disclosure of Medical Information

Anyone who receives your information for purposes of providing you services as part of the wellness program will abide by the same confidentiality requirements. The only individual(s) who will receive your personally identifiable health information is your primary care provider or health educator if you participate in the screening, in order to provide you with services under the wellness program. tes

    In addition, all medical information obtained through the wellness program will be maintained separate from your personnel records, information stored electronically will be encrypted, and no information you provide as part of the wellness program will be used in making any employment decision Appropriate precautions will be taken to avoid any data breach, and in the event a data breach occurs involving information you provide in connection with the wellness program, we will notify you immediately.
