All Full-time and Part-time With Benefits employees are eligible to participate in health insurance coverage through the Diocese of St. Petersburg Self-Funded Health Plan. Coverage will become effective the first of the month following 30 days of continuous active employment.

There are 2 health plan options available; High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) and 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.
