Your numbers provide a snapshot of your overall health and can help identify the warning signs of many serious illnesses. You should have your numbers checked at least once per year, including:

  • Height (without shoes)
  • Weight (without shoes)
  • Waist circumference
  • Blood pressure
  • Cholesterol (total, LDL, HDL, triglycerides)
  • Blood glucose (blood sugar)

Need to get your numbers?

There are several options to get your numbers checked. Here are some ideas.

Take advantage of a local health fair.
Some locations, but not all, occasionally sponsor screening events that provide the opportunity to get these blood tests done on-site. Review the upcoming health fair event schedule online. You'll also receive notifications at your work locations when opportunities become available.

Visit a Chevron health clinic, health station, or fitness center.
If your Chevron worksite has a health clinic, a health station, or a fitness center, you can visit them to get a blood pressure reading or body weight measurements. Please note these locations can provide blood pressure readings, body weight and BMI only; they cannot provide blood tests or other screenings. In addition, many U.S. pharmacies or grocery stores have automated blood pressure machines.

Use your medical plan preventive care benefit.
All of Chevron's medical benefit plans have a preventive care benefit for all enrolled participants, regardless of age. In general, preventive care visits usually include a blood test to screen your cholesterol and glucose levels. These visits also usually include taking your blood pressure. When using your benefit:

  • Ask your doctor to code the visit as "preventive" to ensure your health plan accurately applies the visit to your preventive care benefit.
  • Be sure to call your plan directly before your visit to ask specifically about services that are covered as part of your preventive care benefit, your costs (if any) and to verify that your doctor is a network provider.

Taking the health questionnaire?

When you take the health questionnaire, you'll be asked to provide your personal numbers, including your lab tests, so it's a good idea to have them ready. You don't need all of these numbers to take the health questionnaire or participate in the program, but you'll receive a more accurate result if you do. You can even provide them later after you've already started participating. If you've had a blood test to screen for your cholesterol and glucose within the past year, you can use those results in your health questionnaire. If it's been over a year since you've had a blood test, consider scheduling an appointment to get your up-to-date numbers.
