Prioritize Your Health: Understanding Riverside’s Preventive Health Coverage

Riverside’s health plans cover preventive services – like shots and screening tests – at no cost to you when delivered by an in-network provider.

It’s important to get your annual checkups, screenings, vaccinations, and tests when you need them for early detection of health concerns. By catching things early, you can prevent more serious diseases like diabetes and heart disease. It’s also a lot less expensive to practice preventive healthcare than to only seek help when there’s a problem. CLICK HERE TO SEE A SUMMARY OF PREVENTIVE SERVICES COVERED BY OUR HEALTH PLAN.
