A confidential, online health assessment tool launches on Monday, Oct. 3, as part of Be Colorado, the integrated and comprehensive wellness program for the University Trust Plans of Colorado.

The SUCCEED health assessment will be available through Oct. 28. To encourage participation, the University of Colorado campus with the greatest percent participation in the assessment will have all of its health assessment completers entered in a drawing for REI gift cards.

Starting Monday, participants may go to and take the confidential SUCCEED health assessment and sign up for a free biometric screening. When you complete the health assessment you will be automatically entered to win one of 12 iPads. If you also take the free biometric screening, you will receive an additional entry into the iPad drawing.

The SUCCEED health assessment and health screenings are absolutely private and confidential. Your employer will never see your private health information; to do so would violate the federal HIPAA law. As an employer, CU only will receive de-identified, aggregate reports. The purpose of the reports will be to provide information that can help inform future health benefit design changes that better meet the health needs of our employees.

In this initial phase, the SUCCEED health assessment tool and onsite health screenings will be available to health trust-enrolled employees and retirees of the University of Colorado, University of Colorado Hospital and University Physicians Inc., i.e., those who are the primary members of UA Net, UA Net Colorado Springs, HMO Colorado, Lumenos, CU Kaiser and Medicare Primary plans.

University employees who are on the Kaiser and United Health Care plans offered by the state of Colorado are not eligible because this program is funded by the university medical plans.
