How do I locate Medical Providers?
How do I access my Medical ID Card?
JICS provides access to PeakMed Direct Primary Care (DPC) services for employees enrolled on either the Aetna Choice HSA $4.0k or Base HSA $5.0k plan at no additional cost. Employees enrolling on the Aetna HMO (Copay) plan, or anyone wanting to add their dependents under any medical plan, will be responsible for 100% of the monthly fee to access PeakMed.
Health Savings Account
A qualified high deductible health plan with a Health Savings Account is an alternative to traditional health insurance plans. The HSA is a savings product that offers a different way for consumers to pay for their health care costs. You must be covered by a Qualified High Deductible Health Plan (QHDHP) to be able to contribute to an HSA.
Your HSA is your money. Whatever you do not spend in a given year rolls over to the next. If you change jobs or retire, your HSA balance goes with you.

James Irwin believes in offering our employees the opportunity to provide for their family's future rather than leaving it to chance. Life insurance can provide your dependents with a lifetime of financial security and upon your death, can be used to pay off your debts - such as credit cards and your mortgage - or other expenses that could burden your family.
That's why James Irwin provides Life and Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) insurance to full-time employees at no cost to you.
As an employee, you can purchase additional Life and AD&D for yourself, spouse, and dependents.
Voluntary Short-Term Disability Insurance
Becoming disabled is often and unexpected and a burdensome experience, and it can happen to anyone. Disability insurance can help protect your income in the event of a disability by providing you a benefit for injuries and sickness which are not work related.
James Irwin provides many other great benefits for all employees. If you are interested in any of the following benefits, click the link below.
