MHLbannersmallTake advantage of a healthy opportunity to save on your Health Plan premiums

If you have health insurance benefits through Riverside, the My Healthy Lifestyle program makes it possible for you and your covered spouse to save on your health insurance premiums or other health-related costs in 2013 and beyond.

All it takes is setting up a wellness plan with your primary care physician and then reaching the agreed upon health and wellness goals for the year. And to make it easier, we've put together the five steps you need to take to turn the potential savings – up to $600 – into reality … things like an appointment with your Primary Care Provider for an annual wellness exam (and don't forget, the blood draw is a fasting one) and completing your online Health Risk Assessment (HRA). And remember, every step is completely private and confidential.

Information related to the five steps will help you determine your eligibility for savings, including a points system based on your health and wellness goals. You'll also see the deadlines you need to meet in order to make it happen.
