Health Resources

Best Doctors

Sometimes, individuals and families face overwhelming, complex medical decisions. To assist employees during these difficult times, we provide a confidential, free medical resource service through Best Doctors. Best Doctors gives you the opportunity to consult with some of the world's top specialists – doctors who review your medical records and confirm your diagnosis and treatment for a variety of illnesses. They can also help your doctor identify a wrong diagnosis or a safer and/or more effective treatment.

CIGNA Employee Assistance Program

In addition, we offer CIGNA’s Employee Assistance Program as a confidential resource to help you and your family members with personal and work/life balance issues such as parenting, legal consultation, senior care, child care and much more. Telephone assessments are available from professional counselors, 24 hours each day, seven days a week.

Out-of-pocket Health Care

Out-of-pocket health care can help reduce your taxable income while saving for the expenses you anticipate each year. Employees may elect to set aside pre-tax contributions and direct those contributions into a Health Care Spending Account and/or Dependent Care Spending Account. Contributions to a Health Care Spending Account can be used for out-of-pocket health care expenses while contributions to a Dependent Care Spending Account can be used for dependent day care expenses.

Overall the retirement benefits are attractive for employees at every stage of their career.

  • Our Retirement Savings Plan consists of a company contribution into a company-created 401(k) account on the employee's behalf. The amount of the contribution is based on a percentage of an employee's base pay and eligible bonus.
