Step by Step Health Plan Savings

In 2014 you can save up to $750 off your Riverside health insurance – an increase of $150 over the discount offered previously. To be considered for the savings, you have to participate in My Healthy Lifestyle, a wellness program for employees and their spouses who have Riverside insurance. Depending on which insurance plan you choose, your discount may be taken off your premium, or it may go into a Health Savings Account that can roll forward each year to help reduce your out-of-pocket expenses. (If you are 65 or older, instead of a Health Savings Account contribution your savings will be added to your paycheck in a lump sum twice a year.)

Is your primary care provider part of Riverside Medical Group?

Yes. My primary care provider is part of Riverside Medical Group.
Follow these 3 steps:

Step 1. Contact your doctor's office by phone or online using myHealth eLink* and schedule a wellness exam. Confirm that the following lab work is ordered at least one week before the visit so your doctor can discuss the results when you are in the office:

  •  Blood glucose test
  •  Fasting lipid panel

Step 2. Get your labs done. Don't eat or drink eight hours prior to the lab work.

Step 3. Show up at your doctor's office for your exam. The staff there will take care of the rest by making sure your Physical Exam Verification and consent forms are completed and faxed in so that you are eligible for your discount.

You will get confirmation by letter or e-mail once your process is complete.
