2021-2022 Benefits

  • MEDICALWe will be staying with Humana. In an effort to keep your premiums as low as possible, we have made some slight plan changes. Please review all three plan options to decide which option is best for you and your family. 


  • FLEXIBLE SPENDING ACCOUNT (FSA): You can contribute up to $2,750 in 2021 towards your FSA. This account allows eligible employees to contribute pre-tax dollars to an account to be used for medical, dental and vision expenses. Your full annual election is immediately available at the beginning of the plan year (May 1st). If any balances remain at the end of the plan year, up to $500 will rollover to the new plan year. Any unused funds over $500 will be forfeited.


  • DENTAL & VISION: This year we will be keeping our Dental & Vision coverages with Humana! There will be NO CHANGES to the plan costs or benefits.


  • LIFE/AD&D: We will be keeping our Group Life/AD&D, and Voluntary Life/AD&D with Humana this year. If you currently have coverage, you will keep your benefits. As a new hire, you can enroll in the Voluntary Life/AD&D coverage with no medical questions asked. However, if you are not a new hire and you would like to increase your life coverage or have previously waived coverage and would like to newly enroll, you will need to complete medical questions (Evidence of Insurability EOI) to request the coverage(s).

You can contribute a maximum of $5,000 annually.


  • FSA TRANSIT AND PARKING ACCOUNTS: Employees can deduct “pre-tax” earnings into a Transit or Parking Account.
