The purpose of the annual biometric screening and Health Risk Assessment (HRA) initiative is to alert participants of potential medical issues so they may seek appropriate intervention to improve their health and well-being.
A biometric screening is a general health check that includes a blood pressure check, cholesterol screening, a blood glucose/blood sugar screening, and a measurement of height and weight. The screening takes approximately 15 minutes.
Employees, Retirees and the Spouses/Domestic Partners of employees and retirees who participate in any of the City's three Cigna Health Plans OAPIN1(HMO1), OAPIN2 (HMO2), or Choice Fund (CDHP) are included in the Biometric Screening program and are each potentially subject to a surcharge. To avoid the surcharge(s), employees, retirees and their covered spouses/domestic partners must complete a biometric screening.
For all participating employees, retirees and their covered spouses/domestic partners who have not yet completed their biometric screening, the City provides many opportunities to do so at no cost. These no cost options are the following:
- The City's Health & Wellness Center: The Center is temporarily located at 4750 N. Federal Highway, Suite 300, in Fort Lauderdale.
- The Center is by appointment ONLY.
- Hours of operation are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 7 am to 4 pm, Thursday from 7 am to 6 pm and Saturday from 8 am to noon. The Center is closed for lunch daily from 1 pm to 2 pm. To schedule an appointment, please call 754-206-2420 or visit www.marathon-health.com/myphr.

You may also have the biometric screening done by your personal physician. Non-Cigna providers must complete the Health Screening Verification Form and fax it to the City's Health & Wellness Center at the number indicated on the form, or the employee can personally deliver the completed form to the Center. There may be a charge for their services. If completing the Health Risk Assessment (HRA) Questionnaire, please also return it to the City’s Health & Wellness Center.
The Marathon Health Questionnaire is a voluntary, five-page subjective health questionnaire that is completed by the participant.
