HEALTH SCREENINGS (QUEST)
Learn Your Numbers
Abbott offers various ways to get a free, confidential health screening. The screening is also available to your covered spouse/domestic partner and is designed to give you a detailed picture of your health. If you complete the health screening between
Jan. 20 and Nov. 30, 2020, you will earn 250 points toward rewards.
You can also use your numbers to complete the
Wellness Assessment and earn another 250 points and save $300 on medical contributions in 2021. Don’t miss out!
Biometric health SCREENING OPTIONS
Use your Castlight account to access your Quest Health Screening options. Sign into Castlight and select

Quest Patient Service Center
Free screenings for employees and your covered spouse/domestic partner are available at a Quest Patient Service Center near you.
Onsite at Abbott
Free screenings for employees will be available at select Abbott locations later in 2020.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR SCREENING
Make sure you’re prepared for your health screening so you can get the best results. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Allow 15-20 minutes for your appointment.
- Your height, weight, waist measurement, blood pressure and a blood sample will be taken. The blood draw will be venipuncture.
- You must fast 9-12 hours prior to the screening.
- Take prescribed medications as you normally would.
Drink plenty of water before your appointment as this helps with your blood draw, but do not have any other beverages (like black regular or decaf coffee, juice, or soda).
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER YOUR SCREENING
- Quest will send an email 3-5 days after your screening when your results are in your Castlight account. Go to
Benefits > Quest Diagnostics > View Results in Castlight.
Important: If you completed your Wellness Assessment already and selected “Not Sure” for your health numbers, go back into your Castlight account and review your Wellness Assessment to ensure your numbers update within the assessment.
If you haven’t yet completed the Wellness Assessment, go to your Castlight account and complete it between Feb. 1 and Nov. 30. You’ll save $300 ($600 if your covered spouse/domestic partner completes it, too) on medical contributions in 2021 and earn 250 points!
ALREADY HAD SCREENING FROM YOUR PHYSICIAN?
Great job having an annual check-up with your personal physician! You can self-report your numbers in the
Wellness Assessment. If you want the 250 points for getting your health numbers, you will need to have your physician submit the Physician Results Form to Quest and have it successfully processed before Nov. 30, 2020.
Find the form by signing in to your Castlight account and going to
Quest Diagnostics. You may simply click on “Go to Quest” and follow the prompts in the Quest website to get to your personalized Physician Results Form. The form has details for you and your physician to follow. Contact Quest Diagnostics at
855-623-9355 with questions about the Physician Results Form.
IT’S FREE AND CONFIDENTIAL
There is no cost for you or your covered spouse/domestic partner to get the health screening. The health screening is completely confidential and managed by Abbott’s wellness partners. Abbott never sees individual results.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE
All employees and covered spouses/domestic partners are eligible to complete a free health screening. If you are covering your spouse/domestic partner under Abbott benefits for the first time for 2020, they can create a Castlight account and complete a health screening starting Jan. 20, 2020.
NEWLY HIRED EMPLOYEES
Newly hired employees and their spouses/domestic partners are eligible to complete the health screening. However, you may need to wait to register for 3-4 weeks from your date of hire so Castlight can receive your eligibility. You have until Nov. 30, 2020, to complete the screening.
YOUR PRIVACY IS ALWAYS PROTECTED
All of the information in your Castlight account is completely confidential. Abbott will not have access to your personal health information. One of the reasons Abbott partners with Castlight, an independent company, is to help you feel confident personal results will not be reported to Abbott.
