Health Insurance

For your health and protection, we offer multiple HMO medical plans (which include vision, behavioral health and prescription drug coverage). With different benefit levels, co-payments and deductibles, you're able to select the plan to fit you and your family's needs, all with coverage beginning the first of the month following one month of employment.

Dental Insurance

To encourage regular dental care, we offer a point-of-service (POS) dental plan that allows you and your family to see the dentist of your choice.

Medical Insurance Buyback

Do you already have medical insurance coverage? If so, we offer you a buyback option of $100 per month if you are eligible for the insurance but elect not to enroll.
