There are 2 health plan options available; High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) and Point Of Service (POS) . Both plans are administered by Meritain Health, an Aetna company, and Prescription coverage is thru Optum Rx. Premiums for these plans are shared with the employer.

  • Employees and their eligible dependents may enroll in a health care plan with premiums which can be paid as a pre-tax deduction.
  • We offer optional HSA and FSA allowing employees to set aside pre-tax income for eligible expenses
