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

You will be a more informed healthcare consumer when you Know Your Numbers (KYN) and you will  earn a $100 HSA contribution for taking care of yourself!

How to Participate

There are one of three ways to earn your KYN Incentive.

Choose ONE of the following:

Call CHS On-Site Care at 704.512.3971 to schedule an appointment. No form is necessary. Labs are electronically transferred to your Total Health Portal for the KYN Reward (allow 2 weeks to see reward in your Total Health Portal)

Electronically consent (e-transfer) labs completed with your CHS provider. One to two weeks after your lab draw: You can e-transfer 2016 or 2017 labs from a CHS Provider. 2016 labs outside the recommended values should be retaken in 2017.

Important note: CHS providers will not transfer your lab results to CHS LiveWELL. You must use the electronic form to consent and e-transfer results to LiveWELL each year. (allow one week to see reward in your Total Health Portal)

Mail a copy of your lab results from a non-CHS provider and complete the KYN form together. No physician/provider signature is needed on the KYN form. (allow up to 6 weeks to see the reward in your Total Health Portal. Mailed copies must be postmarked by September 15, 2017)

KYN lab work is not required every year. If your values were normal in 2016, those values can be used again in 2017 for reward in 2018!

If 2016 lab work was outside the recommended values, get new lab values for 2017.

Talk to your doctor about any necessary action to control your values.
