An overview of our benefits package

We offer a comprehensive set of benefits to regular (non-temporary) employees who work a minimum of 24 hours per week. In general, benefits coverage starts on the first of the month following the date of hire. If an employee starts on the first of the month, then coverage begins immediately.



Coverage is through Kaiser Permanente, and includes access to both Kaiser Permanente providers and an extensive array of “in-network” providers through three provider access networks: Access PPO, First Choice Health, and First Health. Premiums are covered at 100 percent for employees and dependents (age 0-20), and 50 percent for dependents (age 21-25) and partners/spouses.

The plan (Access PPO VisitsPlus Platinum LX 250) has a $250 per individual/$500 per family annual deductible and a $2,500 per individual/$5,000 per family annual out-of-pocket maximum.

Limited vision coverage is provided as part of the medical plan. Coverage includes a $100 annual allowance for glasses or contacts.


Coverage is through Delta Dental. Premiums are covered at 100 percent for employees and dependents, and 50 percent for partners/spouses. The plan covers 100 percent of diagnostic and preventative care, 80 percent of basic and restorative procedures, and 50 percent of major procedures. The plan has a $50 annual deductible and a $1,500 annual maximum benefit.
