Westchester Medical – Center for Heart and Health Comprehensive Physicals
Westchester Medical has reopened their offices and are now scheduling LAFD comprehensive physicals after being closed due to COVID-19 restrictions. Westchester Medical has taken additional precautions to ensure the safety of the members and staff. Call (310) 670-1120 to make your appointment now.
Please note, that if you are not feeling well or show any signs of illness, please notify the facility and reschedule. You will be required to wear a mask during the physical and practice social distancing. Make sure that you fast 4 hours prior to the exam (water consumption is permitted), bring a copy of your insurance card, and bring your parking ticket for validation. Also, come dressed exercise clothing and a shower is available if desired.
UFLAC MOU Reminder-Wellness “Bonus”:
As a result of the UFLAC Negotiating Team’s commitment to promote health and wellness, the City agreed to a premium pay to encourage employees to complete an annual comprehensive physical. Each member completing will be eligible to earn up to 1.5% for a 12 month period following the exam beginning June 20, 2021. Please refer to Article 9.3 WELLNESS of MOU 7/1/2019 to 6/30/2022 for specific details, but plan ahead and have your physical scheduled near your date of birth. Also note that UFLAC has also negotiated to have the members be paid four hours of pay for completing the physical off-duty.
UFLAC Anthem HSA PPO Members:
If you are part of UFLAC’s Health Saving Account (HSA) benefit, you are eligible for receiving “up to” $300 per month for completing a yearly comprehensive physical. If you have previously completed a comprehensive physical, you will continue to receive the full benefit as the deadlines have been temporarily extended due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, the extensions will expire, so do not delay scheduling your physical to ensure that you continue to receive the full benefit.
If you are not yet taking advantage of the HSA PPO, please inquire during the Fall 2020 Open Enrollment so that you do not miss out on the cost saving PPO health plan.
As always, please sign up for email notifications and follow UFLAC social media platforms for up to date information.
