Capital Times Union, MVP and WPV (Wellness Programs with Value) have partnered together to help you take charge of your health through our biometrics screening and wellness program.
The first step in taking charge of your health is to Know Your Numbers, which indicates your overall health. MVP encourages employees with MVP health insurance to take this important step in managing your health by participating in a biometric screening.
These comprehensive, confidential screenings are conducted by a registered nurse from WPV. All that is involved is a quick finger stick and you will receive instant results, and a thorough explanation of, your:
TC (total cholesterol), HDL (good cholesterol), TC/HDL ratio
Hemoglobin A1C (blood glucose)
Blood pressure, Heart Rate, Oxygen Saturation
Weight, Body Mass Index and percentage of Body Fat
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE? All employees with MVP insurance
