If you are unable to attend the screenings, you may submit a Physician Form between July 2016 and December 8, 2016. Please note this process has been revised this year and you will register with the same link above and select the Manual Submission option. Physician forms must be submitted by December 15, 2016.

If you plan to add your spouse to your medical plan during open enrollment, then your spouse will have the option to submit a Physician Form beginning in January 2017 once the spouse is active on the plan.  Please email Leighann Boyer for further information.

Flu vaccines will be available at the health screenings on September 27th and October 11th. The Roanoke County/Salem Health Department will provide flu vaccines during the screenings in the Ballroom.

You must bring your insurance card. The Health Department will bill your insurance company whether you have RC insurance or other insurance coverage. All RC Anthem plans will cover the flu vaccines at 100% as part of their preventative benefits.
