add subfloor on basement bathroom

I am thinking about adding insulation and subfloor on the basement bathroom floor like other rooms, which will rise the floor level about 2". Do I have to break concrete floor to redo the riser? Can I use the attached flange to avoid modifying riser?

I recently used a product called dricore as a subfloor. Its only 7/8" thick and has a plastic bottom with channels built into it so water can sit underneath it. Air can also circulate. It is tongue and groover and easy to install.
