District Health Benefits Committee Brings Free Health Screening to the La Canada Unified School District

Published : Monday, February 6, 2017 | 3:00 PM

The La Canada USD District Health Benefits Committee is bringing FREE Mobile Health screenings (provided by Health Fair) to our LCUSD employees and their spouses or domestic partners, if both the employee and spouse or domestic partner are on a medical plan through the LCUSD. These free health screenings are also available to LCUSD retirees that are currently still covered by a medical plan through the district. These health screenings are sponsored by the district, LCTA, and CSEA and will take place between February 23rd and March 3rd. Eligible employees need to call 1-855-342-8378 to register for a time for their health screening. Appointments are limited so call as soon as you can.

A bonus to all participants that complete the health screening is a $10 Target Gift Card, compliments of ASCIP (Alliance Schools for Co-Op Insurance), who provide insurance for school districts, and serve as our insurance provider. In addition, all participants that complete the screening will also be entered into a raffle to win the following prizes: one of two (2) Kindle Fire Tablets and a Disneyland Family 4 Pack. The raffle prizes have been donated by Health Fair.

The Health Fair bus has the ability to perform health screenings on two people at a time (there are screening facilities at each end of the bus). On the average screenings take 45 minutes to complete. All eligible employees can take the “Know Your Numbers Risk Assessment” and in addition, individuals 35-44 years of age (with two Cardiovascular Risk Factors) and all enrolled individuals that are 45 years of age and older are also eligible to take the Ultrasound Tests of the Heart & Arteries.

The district will also provide a 2-3 substitutes (for both certificated and classified employees) on the screening day(s) at each site, so that you can access the screening during the work day if needed.

The dates, locations and times of the screenings are:
Feb. 23 – La Canada Elementary School – 7 am – 4pm
Feb. 24 – District Office – 7 am – 5pm
Feb. 27 – Palm Crest Elementary School – 7 am – 4 pm
