Look healthy + Feel healthy ≠ Healthy

Looking and feeling healthy are not reliable indicators that you are healthy. "Silent killers" such as heart disease, stroke, and cancer often have no obvious symptoms until it is too late.

An annual physical can literally save your life so they are covered under all NS medical plans at little or no cost. This coverage includes routine diagnostic tests.

Free health screenings are being offered at many large work locations and employee events. These are not a replacement for an annual physical but a valuable snapshot of your health (blood pressure, body mass index (BMI), and cholesterol).

Once you know your numbers, you may be inspired to make some lifestyle changes. A range of resources available to employees and spouses/domestic partners include:
