NFPA 1582 Firefighter Smart Set Physical
Posted On: Nov 20, 2013

NFPA 1582 Firefighter Smart Set Physical

Kaiser-Permanente Colorado, in collaboration with the City of Denver, has agreed to provide the following screening tests for fire suppression based on the additional health risks we have as well as requirements specified by the National Fire Protection Agency.

This is not considered an occupational health physical and no information from this examination will be shared with the Department without written consent.

The physical includes:

  • Yearly health maintenance examination with primary care physician (PCP).

  • Yearly fasting cholesterol profile, fasting blood sugar, complete blood count, urinalysis, liver test and kidney function test.

  • Heavy metal screening if member has concerns about exposure or symptoms suggesting heavy metal exposure.

  • HIV and Hepatitis C screening (if member requests or as indicated by CDC guidelines).

  • Appropriate immunizations as recommended by PCP.

  • Framingham risk assessment.

  • 1 baseline ECG–if member has hypertension or diabetes this may occur more frequently.

Stress test with or without imaging shall be performed when clinically indicated by history or symptoms or once every 5 years in members with moderate to high Framingham risk score.

  • Standard Kaiser Permanente cancer screening protocols for colon, prostate, cervical, and breast cancer.

  • Recommend that all members complete PHQ-9, CAGE-AID, and Epworth-sleep screen prior to PCP visit to review results with PCP

All services will be provided to the members in the HMO and the Kaiser Triple Option at $0 copay if they use a Kaiser provider. Due to federal regulations around qualified HDHP plans, some services provided will not be covered at 100% (for example, a stress test will cost approximately $400).

Other services that are available and will be covered at the appropriate schedule of benefits:

  • Audiology testing.

  • Formal eye exam.

  • Referrals for behavioral health, chemical dependency, or sleep apnea screening if clinically indicated

When scheduling your appointment either online or by phone please identify yourself as a Denver Firefighter.  This can be added to comments in the appointment so your Physician can call you prior to the appointment to have labs and forms completed and entered into your medical record for Physician review during your visit.
