If you choose to visit your physician during work hours, you must use appropriate leave and your physician will need to complete the Physician Results Form.  The form must be faxed to Quest Diagnostics by December 31, 2019 in order for you to qualify as completing the wellness screening.  You must obtain the Physician Results Form through the PEBTF Get Healthy site.  The form will be populated with your information (not your social security number) and will include a barcode allowing for accuracy.
