Employee Benefits

Benefits

LifePoint Health is proud to offer a comprehensive benefits package generously subsidized by the facility. Benefits are available for full-time employees and part-time employees. Benefits include:

Medical/Rx

Employees have a choice of three different health plans; each designed to provide competitive healthcare coverage to employees and eligible dependents. While each plan covers the same services, they differ by offering varied co-pays, out of pocket maximums and premium contributions, providing employees with choices that allow them to select the best plan to meet their family’s needs. Our medical plans also provide extensive prescription drug coverage, with options for local pharmacy fulfillment or more conveniently through mail order services that include online services.

Wellness

Employees enrolled in a medical option may earn incentives in the form of medical premium discounts for completing the wellness program.

Health Savings Account

Employees selecting HDHP Planand who qualify under IRS rules may also contribute to a Health Savings Account (HSA) with pre-tax dollars up to the maximum annual IRS limit. The HSA is used to pay for eligible healthcare expenses such as deductibles, copays, vision and dental care. Any balance in the account at the end of the plan year will roll over to the next year, allowing the account holder to accumulate money on a pre-tax basis to offset medical expenses in the future.

Healthcare and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts

Employees can save money by contributing to a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) up to the maximum annual IRS limit with pre-tax dollars. The Healthcare FSA can be used for eligible out-of-pocket healthcare expenses such as deductibles, copays, vision and dental care for individuals who select either of the PPO health plans. The Dependent Care FSA can be used for expenses such as daycare for children and/or senior dependents (regardless of the selection of your medical plan). The balance in either a Healthcare or Dependent Care account does NOT roll over each year and must be used for expenses incurred within the same plan year.

Dental

A comprehensive dental PPO is offered which provides coverage for preventative and diagnostic dental services, basic services, major services, as well as adult and child orthodontia.

Vision

Our vision plan provides coverage for yearly eye exams and contact lenses or glasses and discounts on sunglasses and other eye health services.

Short-Term Disability

Short Term Disability (STD) benefits are provided at no cost to full-time associates.  Part-time associates are eligible to purchase on a voluntary basis.  STD insurance replaces 60% of your income if you become partially or totally disabled for a short period of time. Since the premiums are paid with post-tax dollars, benefit distributions are non-taxable.

Long-Term Disability

Long Term Disability (LTD) benefits are provided at no cost to full-time associates. LTD insurance replaces 60% of your income if you become partially or totally disabled for an extended period of time. Since the premiums are paid with post-tax dollars, benefit distributions are non-taxable.

Basic Life and Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance

The facility provides Basic Life and Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) Insurance equal to the employee’s annual base salary (subject to maximum limits) at no cost to full-time employees working 32 or more hours per week.

Supplemental AD&D insurance is also available up to ten times annual base salary or $2.5 Million, whichever is less.
