A biometric screening is a simple test that determines whether you have risk factors that can set the stage for heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
If you have three or more of the risk factors—high blood pressure, high blood sugar, high triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol and a too large waist circumference—you have what’s called “metabolic syndrome.” Take action to keep serious health conditions from developing and earn $150 in the DoD NAF Health Plan’s 2018 Health Incentive Credit program when you complete the biometric screening and health assessment.
