To maintain a lifetime of better health, it is important for you to identify your individual risk factors and try to modify your lifestyle as appropriate. By completing a Health Risk Assessment (HRA), you will also save money on your health care premiums.

Marquette University has partnered with Aurora Health Care to oversee the HRA process, including conducting the on-campus biometric screenings and providing educational resources to those individuals whose situation may be in need of medical support. We encourage all employees to ask questions to Aurora or their primary care provider about their biometric results.



How to complete your Health Risk Assessment

The university's annual enrollment period for 2015 benefit elections will run from Monday, Oct. 27, 2014 through Friday, Nov. 14, 2014. The HRA is a two step process. Both steps of the HRA need to be completed to be considered for the health care premium discount.

  1. The first step is a fasting biometric screening which is a simple finger stick test that will analyze your cholesterol, HDL and glucose. The results are available in about 15 minutes. Blood pressure, pulse, height, weight, and body mass index will also be recorded. You have three options for completing your biometric screening:

      • Option ONE: Biometric screening with your primary care provider utilizing the Medical Provider Form below. Biometric screenings for employees seeing their primary care provider must fall between Tuesday, July 1, 2014 and Saturday, Nov. 22, 2014. Subject to co-pays. You can fax the form directly to Justin at Aurora Healthcare at (414) 525-2580. This form must be completed by your medical provider but can be faxed directly to Aurora by them or by you.

      • Option Three: Complete a comparable biometric screening at a spouse's or same-sex domestic partner's employer sponsored HRA screening and fax directly to Justin at Aurora Healthcare at (414) 525-2580. Biometric screenings must fall between Tuesday, July 1st, 2014 and Saturday, Nov. 22, 2014. In order to connect all documents, please make sure Marquette University as well as the MU employee’s name is prominent on any alternative form you submit.
  2. The second step is to complete an online questionnaire using the results from your biometric screening using one of the above options outlined. This questionnaire will be available in on Monday, October 27th, the start of the Annual Enrollment Period. Please watch this website or News Briefs for updates as we get closer to the Annual Enrollment period.
