A Reminder that the Deadline for Health Plan Savings Has Been Extended
We have extended the deadline to November 30 for completing the requirements to be eligible to receive health plan premium discounts. Although approximately 46% of eligible team members returned their Physical Exam Verification Forms by early October we want the greatest number of Riverside team members as possible to participate in the program and earn discounts for 2013 and beyond.
Remember that both you and your covered spouse need to participate in order to earn the highest discount. Team members who opt to not participate in the program will no longer earn the premium discount and will see significant increases in their health plan premiums.
What Our Team Member Wellness Program is All About
We understand the impact that maintaining a healthier lifestyle has on a team member's overall health and wellbeing. Through the My Healthy Lifestyle employee wellness program, we offer many opportunities for team members to improve their health, to spend wisely when making choices regarding their health, and to find balance between their work and personal life. One way that Riverside encourages program participation is through the offering of My Healthy Lifestyle health plan rate discounts.
