Health and Wellness


We offer full-time employees a competitive, comprehensive Preferred Provider Option (PPO) Plan providing in-network and out-of-network coverage. This program includes preventive care services covered at 100%, prescription drug coverage and coverage toward eye exams. Part-time employees who work less than 30 hours per week can participate in a Limited Benefit Medical Plan providing varying levels of coverage. The program can include dental and prescription drug coverage, as well as some life and accidental death and dismemberment insurance.



Full-time employees can enroll in a comprehensive dental plan covering a variety of eligible expenses for preventive, diagnostic, restorative care, and orthodontia.



Full-time employees can enroll in a standalone vision care plan which provides routine annual eye exams, frame/lens allowance and access to a broad network of large retailers and independent providers.


Flexible Spending Accounts

Participation in a flexible spending plan allows full-time employees the ability to set-aside pre-tax dollars to pay for qualified out-of-pocket expenses related to health care, dependent care or commuting.


Wellness Incentives

We provide credits that reduce the cost of medical plan premiums to full-time employees who make healthy choices by participating in wellness programs, including:

  • Annual biometric screenings (blood test, blood pressure screening, etc.)
  • Annual Personal Health Risk Assessment (online survey)
  • Leading a Tobacco-Free Lifestyle


Saving for Your Future

Retirement Savings [401(k)] with Company Match

Eligible employees receive a dollar-for-dollar match on before-tax 401(k) contributions up to the first 2 percent of pay. For the next 4 percent contributed, the company matches with a contribution of 50 cents on the dollar. Employees choose from a wide selection of investment alternatives, including target retirement funds, which are pre-allocated funds based on your anticipated retirement date that automatically become more conservative as you approach retirement.
