Did You Know?

84% of workers incur less than $5,000 per year in medical expenses and 95% incur less than $15,000 per year in medical expenses*. This means the vast majority of employees do not incur enough medical expense to overcome their deductible and therefore pay out-of-pocket for all their costs. The ESC Fixed Indemnity plan helps pay for day-to-day medical expenses without the high deductibles major medical plans require.

NOTE: Fixed Indemnity is an excepted supplemental healthcare plan, not a Major Medical plan, that is designed to provide a fixed dollar amount used to cover basic healthcare needs.

Dental Plan:

The dental plan pays a portion of the costs for dental claims like exams, cleaning, fillings, and other dental work. The plan covers more procedures the longer coverage is carried.

Term Life Plan:

The Term Life plan pays life insurance up to $10,000 to a selected beneficiary. This plan can also cover dependents.

 Sh0rt-Term Disability Plan:

The Short-Term Disability plan covers 60% of expected salary (up to $150 per week) for up to 26 weeks if the insured becomes disabled and is unable to work.

 Minimum Essential Coverage:

The Minimum Essential Coverage (MEC) plan is an ACA-compliant wellness and preventive plan that provides coverage for services such as screenings, immunization and vaccinations, contraception, dietary and nutritional supplements, and more. For those working in areas where their state government mandates that a minimum level of health insurance is carried, the MEC plan satisfies this requirement.

Open enrollment is February 22 to March22.
