Health plan options for employees

We offer employees six plan designs with different options to offer you flexibility in terms of where you live and your provider network.

All employees with an assignment of 0.20 FTE or greater can enroll in a health insurance plan — costs are automatically deducted from your paycheck.

Retirees, before you turn 65, you have the same health insurance options as employees. Once you enroll in Medicare through the government at age 65, you’re eligible for our UK health insurance which supplements Medicare. It's called Medicare Advantage.
