Config help - check a URL

I have been using haProxy for a while and it is working great. However, when one of my 3 servers stops responding, I am still getting traffic to it. I would guess this is due to the way I have the check setup. What I really want it to do is check and see if a particular URL is up instead of just the IP. I know there must be a way to do this, but these things really confuse me.

Below is my current config file. How would I change the check to look at a URL instead of just at the IP level?

Would I use ...
option httpchk /home/

Any help you can give is much appreciated :)
