- Health Insurance
The Company provides health insurance for our employees and contributes toward the premium cost. We even contribute to a health saving account which we establish for participants in the group health plan. See the ‘Health Savings’ section for detailed information.
New employees can enter the plan the first of the month following 60 days of continuous employment from date of hire. Current employees can enter the plan during open enrollment which is during November of each year. Current employees who are in the plan already do not need to enroll again. The plan year runs from December through November of the following year.
To enter the plan you must complete an application during the 60 day waiting period for new employees or during the open enrollment for current employees. Government restrictions will not allow entry dates other than these, other than for a very few exceptions.

- Optum Bank Health Savings Account - H.S.A.
The Company contributes toward the healthcare costs of our employees by making voluntary contributions to health savings accounts for participants in the group health insurance plan. A health savings account is merely a separate bank account that you own. This account is yours. The balance is never forfeited and if you leave employment the balance and account go with you.
The balance grows through voluntary employee contributions through payroll withholding and voluntary company contributions. Employee contributions are elected each year by completing an election form. No employee deductions will be taken without providing an election form for each calendar year you wish to contribute to your account.
If you want to have online access to your Optum Bank HSA to view frequently asked questions (FAQ), view transactions, pay qualified medical expenses and view balances, etc. go to Optum Bank Account Manager. Go here to register.
- Cafeteria Plan
The Company has a Cafeteria Plan in place to help employees save on qualified expenses. You do not have to participate in the group health insurance plan to use the Cafeteria Plan.
In this plan employees make pre-tax contributions to their account to be used for qualified dental/vision/medical expenses. For assistance with your cafeteria plan, contact the administrator via their website where you can check your cafeteria plan balance on line.
Common Forms can be found on the administrator’s website.

- Profit Sharing, 401k, Roth 401k
The Company periodically makes voluntary contributions to a profit sharing plan of up to 15% of qualified wages and will match up to 4% on a 401k / Roth 401k. You are automatically enrolled in the profit sharing portion of this plan upon your hire date. You don’t need to enroll to be a participant. To qualify for a company profit sharing contribution you generally must be employed on September 1 and August 31 of the following year. The company contribution becomes yours based on years of service. After six years of service the company contribution is 100% yours.
You have the responsibility for making your own investment decisions from among the investment options provided by the Company. If you don’t make investment elections your funds will be deposited into the default fund which is an interest bearing fund with little to no market risk.
Participation in the 401k / Roth 401k portion of this benefit requires that you make an annual election. No contributions will be withheld from your check until this annual election is made.
