Definitions
Health Indicators
Health screening results for BMI, blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood glucose are predictors of your risk for developing conditions like heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. We want to encourage members to take steps to prevent or control these conditions in order to increase your health and control costs for yourself and the State Plan.

At-Risk Levels
If your results are above the levels indicated above, they will show up as elevated (higher risk level) on your State-sponsored health screening results. Members whose results are above these levels are at increased risk for adverse health conditions.
