    Members can take a Health Assessment to evaluate their individual health risks and receive personalized suggestions for how to improve their health and wellness. When they finish the assessment, they’ll find out their “Health Age” and what behaviors and lifestyle choices make them older (or younger!) than they actually are.

    For group members, the Health Assessment is one of two wellness activities — along with biometric screening — that must be completed to earn their wellness program reward. Select the correct group size at the top of this page to learn more about the Alaska Wellness program.

    To access the Health Assessment, members login to the secure member portal and go to:
