WebMD Health Questionnaire

What is the WebMD Health Questionnaire?

The WebMD Health Questionnaire is an annual check up on your overall well-being that asks you a series of questions about your health needs, strengths and challenges.  Your responses to the questions are completely confidential.  Your responses are evaluated to calculate your unique score and build your customized wellness plan. Now, the new and improved WebMD Health Questionnaire provides an updated snapshot of your health picture, including:

  • Mobile capability: Take your health questionnaire while on the go!
  • Shorter format: An interactive design and simpler questions have cut test-taking time nearly in half.
  • Updated research: Rooted in solid science, we've adjusted questions based on new research.

Why take the Health Questionnaire?

If you are working on a change it's a great way to get direction on realistic and actionable next steps to take.  If you are already in good health, it helps you maintain good health, vitality and energy.  It only takes about 15 minutes to complete, and you will be able to see how your results compare to those of your peers of the same gender and similar age range.

To access the Health Questionnaire, you need to first register for your personal WebMD online portal.  Go to and follow the directions on the screen.  This WebMD portal is open to all benefits-eligible employees.

If you are participating in MyHealth Rewards completing the Health Questionnaire is a required activity.
