Complete the HRA 2.0

About the NMCPHC Workplace HRA 2.0: The Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center (NMCPHC) Workplace Health Risk Assessment 2.0 (HRA 2.0) is brief and anonymous for military members and GS civilians. This measures lifestyle behaviors that are most commonly associated with adverse health outcomes.

Participant's booklet: The participant’s booklet highlights health risks, provides credible web-based sources of health information, and encourages and empowers the user to better manage their personal health. The booklet also serves as a tool for the user to initiate dialogue with their health care provider. This HRA 2.0 is not intended to replace consultation with a health care provider.

Command Reports: The “Command Report” is based on a workplace identifier (Navy or Marine Corps UIC) and can be used to assess the overall health of a workplace or any group of workplaces. The reports will be provided on the website as follows:

  • First part of the year: Monthly, May-June
  • Middle of the year: Bi-weekly, July-September
  • End of the year: Weekly, October-December

However, at this time we are not sure what the format will be. More information will be forthcoming.

The HRA 2.0 is not the PHA: The web-based Periodic Health Assessment (PHA) required for every active duty member (IAW DoDI 6200.06) has its own built-in HRA-type questions. There are three key differences between the HRA and PHA:

  • (1) The PHA questions differ somewhat from the NMCPHC Workplace HRA 2.0 and are, in some cases, more clinical;
  • (2) The PHA is not anonymous and is part of the members medical record;
  • (3) PHA data does not include the members workplace identifier and the PHA data cannot be retrieved for use in workplace health risk analyses. Therefore, the HRA 2.0 remains the only tool available to workplaces to understand health risk behavior of their workforce and the HRA 2.0 remains the basis of HRA-related scoring for the Blue H - Navy Surgeon General’s Health Promotion and Wellness Award.

Using the NMCPHC Workplace HRA 2.0:


  • Decide how and when you will offer the HRA 2.0 to your workplace members. For example, the Commanding Officer can email-invite all GS civilian and military members to complete the HRA 2.0 during a discreet time period. Or, a Commanding Officer that controls the PHA process for his/her own staff could ask or task military staff members to complete the Workplace HRA 2.0 (along with the mandatory ePHA) at the time of their annual PHA process.
  • Please use the HRA 2.0 Email Cut and Paste for your convenience to advise your Sailors or Marines of the information below
    • Tell them what UIC to use.
    • Tell them the HRA 2.0 is anonymous
    • Tell them the HRA 2.0 is intended to identify some of their specific health risks, provide credible web-based sources of health information, encourage and empower them to better manage their personal health, and serve as a tool for dialogue with a health care provider, if so desired.
    • Tell them the data helps you deliver health promotion services they want and need.
    • Tell them how HRA 2.0 completion helps the command score Blue H points.
