For your benefit...

Comprehensive Medical Plan

Health Care Reimbursement Plan

To help save on federal taxes, this plan allows employees to have money deducted pre-tax from their paycheck and placed into an account. This plan reimburses health care expenses that are not fully reimbursed by insurance, such as dollars spent on glasses and contact lenses, orthodontia, and certain over-the-counter drugs, to name a few.

Dental Plan

Dental benefits are available through a traditional dental plan option. The plan gives employees the freedom to use any dental provider they wish. Preventive and diagnostic services are covered at 100%. The plan also covers basic and major restorative services with applicable deductible and co-payments.
