Eligible employees have an opportunity to make their own benefit decisions to meet their particular situation and needs. Annually, during the open enrollment period, employees may elect changes to these benefits as offered by the Organization. Changes may be made at other times only with a change in family/certain employment statuses. The following benefits are pre-tax deductions:
• Medical Plan
• Dental Plan
• Health and Dependent Care Reimbursement Accounts (Flexible Spending Accounts-FSA).
Details about Flexible Benefit programs are provided in the Individual Benefit Booklet and are available in the Compensation and Benefits Department.
Partnership Savings Plan
PCMH offers a 401(k) plan to help employees build additional retirement income. There is a current match of $.50 for each $1.00 the employee contributes, with a maximum match of 5% of annual salary, i.e. employee contributes 5% before state and federal taxes, and the Organization matches 2.5%. Details of this plan are available in the Compensation and Benefits Department and Benefit Booklet.
PHARMACY. Prescribed drugs may be purchased from the employee pharmacy (located in the BB&T building) at a reduced rate for use by the employee or his/her immediate family including spouse, children, and stepchildren living in the same household.
HOSPITAL BILLS/SURGICENTER. Employees of the Organization, spouses of employees, and dependents of employees with the Organization's Medical Plan coverage or another insurance comparable to the Organization's Medical Plan will be eligible for a discount of 50% towards the deductible and/or 50% towards the co-insurance. Discounts MUST be requested in person at the Business Office within 60 days of the insurance payment or denial. Balance remaining after the eligible discount portion must be paid in full or set up on payroll deduction at that time in order to receive the discount. Claims not paid by the Organization’s Medical Plan or comparable insurance coverage will not be eligible for discount. Also, accounts in bad debt are not eligible for discounts. If the patient has more than one insurance, a discount will be given only after all insurers have responded.
The use of tobacco products is prohibited on the hospital campus and in all hospital owned or leased vehicles and aircraft. Disciplinary action will be taken if a violation occurs.
