What is Everside Health?
Everside Health provides primary care services where employees and their families can get the health and wellness services they need from an experienced doctor at no out-of-pocket cost. Everside Health providers are dedicated to serving an employer’s population, are highly accessible at convenient hours and office locations and are committed to delivering great care and service. These providers offer a personal level of service and are available around the clock via phone for urgent health matters.
Why is the SHBP/SEHBP offering these services?
The SHBP/SEHBP are offering these services as an alternative to high-cost healthcare in the community. By using Everside Health clinics, you will receive high-quality primary care with no co-pays, focused on helping you be healthier and lowering what you pay out-of-pocket for healthcare.
Who’s eligible to receive Everside services?
As an active member of the State Health Benefits Program (SHBP) or School Employees? Health Benefits Program (SEHBP), you and your eligible family members may use Everside Health services without signing up. Employees retain the same access to their insurance-contracted providers through Horizon and the same benefits as offered in their current SHBP or SEHBP health plan.
What’s different about Everside compared to my current primary care provider?
As an Everside patient, you have 24/7 access to your care team for urgent needs. You can receive a scope of virtual and in-person services that includes everything from routine checkups and urgent needs to chronic condition management, mental health screenings, wellness counseling, and more. Additionally, your Everside provider has more time during your appointment to listen to your specific concerns, goals, and needs and can help support healthy lifestyle changes that make sense to you.
Does choosing the Everside option increase my healthcare costs?
No, it should do just the opposite. A visit to an Everside provider can save you an expensive trip to the emergency room or urgent care, and most visits are at little to no cost. There’s also no charge for phone, secure messaging, or other remote interactions with your provider. There are some tests and procedures that are billed to your primary insurance at rates that are usually much lower than with other providers. Services that aren’t covered by your Everside membership may still be covered by your employer’s insurance plan.
What makes Everside providers different?
Everside providers see 70% fewer patients than a typical primary care provider, allowing them to spend more time with you when you need it, start appointments on time, and provide you with flexible appointment availability. They also believe in caring for the whole person — physical health, mental health, exercise, and nutrition — that’s affordable and accessible for all.
Can I use Everside but still keep my primary care provider (PCP)?
We recommend that you make your Everside provider your first point of contact for any health concerns. They provide a personalized level of service and can also help you manage your overall care. So, instead of waiting to see a specialist to receive care, you can take advantage of the variety of services offered at your health center and through virtual care. We recommend that — immediately after registering — you schedule your welcome appointment so your provider can get to know you, your health history and concerns, and answer any questions you may have.
What happens if I experience an urgent health issue after hours or if I’m away from home?
Your Everside health center has an after hours call center that is available 24/7 in addition to the Everside app. This means that you can call the health center anytime to reach your care team and explain the health issue. They’ll work with you on what to do for your situation, whether it’s addressing your concern virtually, scheduling an appointment for the next business day, or directing you to the most appropriate local care setting.
How’s Everside different from an urgent care clinic?
Your Everside health center is not an urgent care or walk-in clinic, though we provide many services that can help avoid an urgent care visit. Scheduling your appointment for same-day or next-day needs allows you to get in at your preferred time. You won’t experience the long wait times that are common at walk-in clinics. You can also choose to schedule a virtual appointment with a trusted provider from the comfort of your own home.
What if I already have a pediatrician for my children that I like?
At Everside Health, we love kids! Our experienced family medicine providers are happy to serve as your children’s pediatrician, or if you have an established pediatrician, we can offer an additional option for your kids’ healthcare needs. Typically, it takes less time to get an appointment at your Everside health center than it does at a pediatrician’s office. Also, your Everside team is available 24/7 for pediatric urgent needs or questions. Please check with your health center to learn more about pediatric services offered.
Does Everside make it easier for me to manage medication refills and dosage changes?
Yes, your Everside provider can help to manage your refills and dosage changes. Simply call your health center for more information. Certain refills can be handled remotely by phone or online, without the need for an in-person office visit.
Should I wait until I’m sick to establish care with my Everside provider?
Everside is always here for you if you’re ill or injured, even if you’re a new patient. However, we recommend scheduling your first appointment before you get sick. Doing so allows us to get to know you, your medical history, and your health priorities. Plus, Everside employs screening protocols that may catch a health issue early on before it becomes urgent or chronic.
Can I visit any Everside Health location?
Am I only allowed to see my selected doctor? Your selected Everside Health doctor will be your primary point of contact and the medical professional overseeing your care. You may make an appointment at any of our Everside Health doctor’s offices that are open to the public and choose to see another provider as needed. This is especially convenient if you are traveling or have a dependent living out of town or state. You may also email or call your doctor with your questions, or for consultation. In this situation, contact your Everside Health doctor first and they, or another clinic team member, will advise on the best option for you.
