Employee Benefits Guide old

Our employee benefits are an important part of the total compensation package received by our employees. Unless otherwise specified, the term “full-time” refers to regular employees scheduled to work 30 or more hours per week. The term “part-time” refers to regular employees scheduled to work 20 to 39 hours per week. The following is a summary of the benefits offered at Peak Vista:


Medical and Dental Plan

Full-time and part-time employees are eligible for medical and/or dental benefits on the first of the month or after 60 days of employment.  The company pays 100% of the cost of employee-only coverage of medical and dental benefits for full-time employees. The company contributes an additional dollar amount based on years of employment at Peak Vista if employee adds dependent coverage to medical and/or dental elections. Peak Vista will contribute a flat dollar amount per month toward the cost of medical and dental insurance for eligible employees working 40 hours or more after 36 months of employment.


Additional Vision Plan

Full-time and part-time employees are eligible for additional vision benefits on the first of the month or after 60 days of employment.  Although Peak Vista’s medical plan includes vision benefits, employees may opt to pay for an additional vision plan.


In-Lieu Cash Benefit

Full-time employees who waive their option to enroll in the medical plan are eligible to receive a monthly cash benefit, once they show proof of coverage, on the first of the month or after 60 days of employment.


Flexible Spending Accounting (Medical and Dependent Care)

Full-time and part-time employees are eligible to enroll in our Dependent Care and/or Medical Flexible Spending Accounts.  These plans allow you to reduce your taxable income by the amounts of anticipated dependent care expenses or for eligible medical expenses for you and your entire family up to IRS limits.


Qualified Retirement Savings Plan

Peak Vista Community Health Centers offers a Retirement Savings Plan to full-time, part-time (scheduled to work 1-39 hours per week), and temporary employees in which you are eligible to participate immediately. Employees can save up to annual IRS limits on a tax-deferred or post-tax basis. After one year of full-time or part-time employment, the company will match your deferrals dollar-for-dollar up to 4%. All deposits are 100% vested to the employee.
