The annual online health assessment is easy and takes only a few minutes. Maybe that’s why many City of Houston employees put it off.

That ... and the tumultuous aftermath of late summer historic flooding and two uncharacteristic winter storms that produced snow and ice.

Regardless, almost suddenly, the approaching health assessment deadline now looms large — almost as large as the medical rate discount people will miss if they don’t obtain their biometric numbers and complete their assessment.

This year’s Feb. 2 deadline is later than usual, pushed back several months due to the general disruption caused by Hurricane Harvey’s historic flooding.

Nevertheless, thousands of city employees and covered spouses have yet to complete their health assessments and now have only a few days left.

The good news is twofold: there are a still several days left, and the assessment is generally quick and easy.

Here’s what employees and covered spouses need to know to complete their health assessment and qualify for up to a $900 medical rate discount:
