Get a biometric screening at work

We’re offering biometrics screenings across the enterprise through August. Getting a screening at work is the convenient way to get the biometric numbers needed for this year’s September Wellbeing Assessment. In 15 minutes or less, health professionals will do a quick finger prick; take your blood pressure; and measure your height, weight and waist behind a privacy screen. Offered free of charge*, these screenings are confidential and your biometric numbers will be automatically uploaded to the September Wellbeing Assessment for you. New this year, if you get a screening at the office, you’ll earn 500 points toward your 2018 wellness incentives.

Work in Northbrook, IL or Irving, TX? You can get a biometric screening at the Allstate Good Life® Wellness Center. To make an appointment, call (847) 402-2300 in Northbrook or (972) 915-7700 in Irving. Appointments are available Monday through Friday, 7 - 11 a.m. New this year, if you get a screening at a Wellness center, you’ll earn 500 points toward your 2018 wellness incentives.

*The cost is paid for by the Allstate Medical Plan and your employer.

See if your biometric numbers have been uploaded

If you get a biometric screening at work, your biometric numbers will be uploaded to our third-party wellness vendor, Virgin Pulse, approximately 1-2 weeks after your screening.**

You can check your numbers:

  • Online: Log on to Virgin Pulse via Your Benefits Resources™ (first time visitors need to register). Once inside your Virgin Pulse account, hover over the Tracking bar and select Stats. Scroll down to see your biometric numbers.
  • On the App: If you’ve already registered your Virgin Pulse account and have downloaded the Virgin Pulse app, you can also see the numbers on the app by selecting Stats from the Menu page.

If you believe an error has been made in the uploading of your biometric numbers, contact Virgin Pulse at (833) 536-4198 or email allstate.support@virginpulse.com.

**If you complete your biometrics at an Allstate Good Life Wellness Center after August 20, 2018, your biometric numbers may not be uploaded to your Virgin Pulse account; you may need to manually enter them when you take the September Wellbeing Assessment.
