Know Your Numbers

Knowing your numbers is an important step to maintain or improve your health.

You will be a more informed healthcare consumer when you Know Your Numbers (KYN). As an added bonus, when you participate, you will earn a $100 HSA contribution for taking care of yourself!

Teammates must take action each year to earn the Know Your Numbers reward.

KYN appointments at On-Site Care will become limited as the deadline nears. Get ahead of the rush! Schedule your On-Site Care appointment at 704.512.3971, before October 5. Teammates can visit their own provider for KYN labs.

Know Your Numbers labs need to be drawn by October 5, 2018, then take action with one of the Know Your Numbers options so this Incentive is shown as complete in Total Health Portal by November 6, 2018.

Important Note: Labs drawn in 2017 and within the normal range can be used again in 2018. However, you must take action in 2018 to transfer the lab values:

  • If labs were drawn by an Atrium Health provider, use the Know Your Numbers e-form
  • If labs are not visible in the Know Your Numbers e-form OR if labs were drawn by a non-Atrium Health provider, resubmit the lab values using the paper 2018 Know Your Numbers form

Ways to Earn Your Reward

There are one of three ways to earn your KYN Incentive, choose ONE

Labs Drawn by On-Site Care

Call On-Site Care at 704-512-3971 to schedule an appointment. No form is necessary. CHS On-Site Care will transfer labs drawn in 2018 on your behalf to your Total Health Portal for the reward.

If you wish to transfer 2017 labs, drawn by On-Site Care, that are within the normal range, you, the teammate must electronically transfer 2017 labs using the LiveWELL KYN e-Form.

OR

Labs Drawn by an Atrium Health Provider

Use the LiveWELL KYN e-Form to electronically transfer labs completed with a CHS provider. 2017 or 2018 labs must be electronically transferred by the teammate. If labs are not visible, use option #3

If you wish to transfer 2017 labs, that are within the normal range and drawn by an Atrium Health provider, you, the teammate must electronically transfer 2017 labs using the LiveWELL KYN e-Form in 2018

OR

Labs Drawn with a Non-Atrium Health Provider, or If Labs Are Not Visible in the e-Form

Mail together, a copy of 2017 or 2018 labs and the completed 2018 KYN form. The provider is not expected to complete the KYN form, this is the teammate’s responsibility – not the provider’s responsibility

IMPORTANT: For HIPAA reasons, LiveWELL and your provider do not have access or the ability to transfer your KYN information to LiveWELL.

Knowing your numbers is an important step in taking action to maintain or improve your health.
