Our health care plan provides comprehensive, affordable medical coverage through a network of physicians, hospitals and other providers. Coverage at most facilities includes dental and vision care for employees and their families. Our health care plan is designed to fit individual needs, provide access to healthcare choices, and provide preventive coverage to all employees.
Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides professional assistance in addressing personal problems that may affect your health, job and well-being. This confidential, voluntary service is offered free of charge to employees and their dependent family members. Information, counseling and referrals are available to address work-life issues such as depression, anxiety, marital and relationship problems, alcohol and drug abuse, work performance issues, child care and elder care needs, identity theft support and legal and financial problems.
Employees may set aside pre-tax dollars in a Health Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to pay for eligible health care expenses not covered by the health plan. This includes items such as deductibles, co-insurance, contact lenses and vision care, prescription drugs, co-pays, dental treatment and orthodontic care.
A dependent care FSA can be used to pay for eligible dependent care expenses such as daycare for a child, home care for a dependent parent or special care for physically handicapped dependents.
Life Insurance and AD&D coverage are provided at no cost to employees, with supplemental, dependent life, long-term and short-term disability insurance available at group rates.
We provide all employees with paid time off for vacation, holidays, bereavement and jury duty. Paid time off policies vary by location.
