Clarification regarding recent questions surrounding Riverside's participation in Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) Health Insurance Plans
As many of you prepare for 2016 benefits enrollment, we wanted to take a moment to clarify some recent changes made by BCBSIL to its insurance products and clear up any confusion as to how Riverside will participate with BCBSIL.
In 2016, BCBSIL is steering their beneficiaries away from the BCBSIL PPO network to their BlueChoice or BluePrecision networks found on the Illinois Health Insurance Marketplace (the exchange).
Riverside is not participating in either the BlueChoice or BluePrecision networks found on the exchange.
However, Riverside continues to participate in BCBSIL PPO commercial plans through the PPO network. These insurance plans are not offered on the exchange but rather are selected through an insurance broker or through your employer (who has purchased these through a broker).
In addition, Riverside also continues to participate in BCBSIL Medicaid and MMAI (Illinois' Medicare-Medicaid Alignment Initiative) plans.
Also, please note, Riverside participates in numerous marketplace and non-marketplace insurance plans. For a full list of the plans that are accepted by Riverside Healthcare and our Riverside Medical Group providers, click here.
