Ship Join Bay Hosts Successful Know Your Numbers Health Screening Event

Published January 25, 2023

Salaried/non-represented employees at Newport News Shipbuilding who are enrolled in an HII medical plan must complete the two Know Your Numbers requirements – a health screening and a wellness profile – by March 31 to secure savings of $600 on their medical premiums in the 2023 plan year.

In addition to the HII Family Health Center, Know Your Numbers health screening events are held in various locations across the shipyard. The Columbia-Class Submarine Program moved into the new Ship Join Bay (Bldg. 1913) in the North Yard in April 2022.

However, no stop was scheduled for the new facility. That was until Nathan Wade (K96) suggested during a Columbia Engagement Team meeting that a stop be added to make it easier for shipbuilders in the facility to take advantage of the wellness checks.

The Columbia Engagement Team worked with QuadMed and a stop was added to the schedule. On Jan. 12, 70 shipbuilders in the Ship Join Bay were able to participate in the program, gaining important insight into their health and wellness.
