Get Free Preventative Health Screenings at Work

[Updated 9/10/2021, Madras, OR] Associates in Bright Wood’s Health and Wellness Plan (BWHWP) can now get free preventative health screenings while at work and on the clock. All you have to do is sign up for an appointment on the day(s) in November that Catapult’s portable lab will be visiting your site (see below).

Sign up:

Catapult’s health technicians are bilingual. Each screening begins with COVID-19 protocols, a blood pressure check, and a finger-stick blood test. Then you will be asked to fill out a health questionnaire on a touch-screen laptop. Next, a Catapult technician will measure your height, weight, and abdominal circumference in a private room.

See the health screenings Catapult provides for free in their portable lab.

You should have your screening results in 15 to 25 minutes. A licensed nurse practitioner will go over them with you via a private video conference. If your screens raise any red flags, the nurse will help you figure out the next steps. You can have your lab results sent to your doctor. Bright Wood will not see your records.

“Many of us have not engaged with our health care providers over the last year due to the pandemic,” Daryl Booren, Personnel Director, said. “The Catapult lab makes it super easy because all you have to do is walk over, do your screen, have your visit, and then go back to your plant.”

“Early detection is crucial in health care, whether it be physical or mental health,” Daryl said. “The earlier that you begin to treat something, the quicker and better the recovery, and the lower the cost associated with it for the individual and the BWHWP.”

“These diagnostic screenings are open to whoever wants to try them,” Gloria Lockey, Personnel Manager, said. “They are convenient, they are here, you don’t have to request time off for them, and you don’t have to pay for them.”

Sign up:

  • Madras/Culver: November 1 – 12 (10 days) from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Culver associates will screen at the Madras site due to Catapult’s 25-visit per day minimum.
  • Redmond: November 15 (1 day) from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Prineville: November 16 (1 day) from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Menomonie: November 18 (1 day) from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Free At-Home Covid Tests from MDLive

[9/1/2021, Madras, OR] Participants in Bright Wood’s Health and Wellness Plan (both Basic and Plus) have the option of free at-home COVID-19 testing through MDLIVE.

If you (or a covered dependent) have symptoms or think you have recently been exposed to the virus, schedule a telehealth visit with an MDLIVE doctor. The doctor will access your condition and, if appropriate, he/she may order an at-home COVID-19 test.

If so, a nasal short-swab test will be delivered to your home. You then send your sample back, and MDLIVE will notify you by text when the results are ready. Most test kits will be delivered within two days, and results will be ready one to two days after your sample is received. Kits do not ship on Sundays.

For faster results, contact your family doctor, hospital, or public health department to find out where you can be tested locally. Before visiting a testing site, be sure to confirm if a doctor’s order is needed to obtain a test. MDLIVE doctors can only provide at-home COVID-19 tests at this time.
